Project Description

The North Dakota Drift Prairie Project- V (NDDPP) is the 5th phase of a project designed to protect, restore and enhance wetland and grassland habitats. Wetland and native grassland habitats in the NDDPP area continue to be at risk of being drained or converted for production agriculture. Fee title acquisition and the purchase of conservation easements will perpetually protect this valuable grassland and wetland habitat. This landscape contains some of the most numerous, productive and diverse wetland communities in the world with wetland densities often exceeding 100 basins per square mile. This proposal will help protect, restore and enhance an ecological functioning prairie wetland complex through perpetual conservation grassland and wetland easements, wetland restoration, grass plantings, and managed grazing systems on 20,886 acres.
