Restoration and Management

Working together to restore or improve natural habitats on your land

The Land Trust has worked with landowners and other partners to restore over 950 acres of wetlands and prairie since 2014 and we’re continuing to grow the program to more areas.

Land protected with a conservation easement remains in private hands, and landowners retain all authority for maintenance and upkeep. However, the Land Trust works with landowners to craft habitat management plans that guide upkeep of natural areas on their property. Habitat Management Plans may include specific restoration and management recommendations to improve the condition of lands and water for wildlife or other natural resources.

If you have a conservation easement on your land, you become eligible for state and federal funds to help in restoring the land. The Minnesota Land Trust will assist landowners with habitat enhancement or ecological restoration work after the property is protected. We can arrange technical support, apply for and administer grants, connect a landowner to experts, and in certain instances manage construction.
