Our program will protect, in perpetuity, native prairie tracts in western Minnesota. Fee title tracts will be the top priority for the funding. Funding will be used for the purchase of habitat easements if the funding cannot be used entirely on fee title tracts. The funding will purchase approximately 525 acres of native prairie in fee title, 1,583 acres of habitat easements, or a combination of the two.

Fund Source

Non-native cattails (Typha spp.) have invaded wetlands in the Border Waters near Voyageurs National Park, displacing native vegetation, reducing biodiversity, degrading fish/wildlife habitat, impairing recreational opportunities, and degrading cultural resources, especially wild rice (Zizania palustris). These lakes are designated "Outstanding Resource Value Waters" (Minn. R.7050.0250-0335) where herbicide use is prohibited. Treatment methods include mechanical removal along with burning and other methods.
