Today, many people realize the value of wetlands and are coming together to restore some of the lost wetland acreage. Through programs such as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Partners for Wildlife, landowners are restoring wetlands on previously drained land and enjoying the benefits wetlands provide. In this manual, we will briefly describe where wetland restoration is possible and how it is done. The majority of the manual will focus on what you, the landowner, can expect from your restored wetland and what you will need to do to maintain and manage your wetland.
