Replicating and restoring natural hydrology on farm and forest lands is an effective large scale solution to flooding and water quality.

Stream restoration on farmland improves water quality and field drainage.

“You take the water coming off the farmland and put it onto the wetlands, let the wetlands filter it, and then none of the water has to leave the property. By all of us working together we have commercial farm property, but we’ve got incredible wildlife property too.”

-Gene Fox, former representative for Mattamuskeet Ventures
