Magnolia partners with USDA on Market-Based Approach to Wetland Compliance

Press Release from USDA

Created by the 2014 Farm Bill, Magnolia's wetland mitigation banking program helps farmers and ranchers so they can maintain eligibility for other USDA programs. 

Wetland mitigation banking uses a market-based approach to restore, create or enhance wetlands in one place to compensate for unavoidable impacts to wetlands at another location.

These markets result in landscape scale conservation projects that functionally improve environmental outcomes, while also providing a voluntary option for agricultural producers to expand operations on marginal or seasonal wetlands.
