"This is a huge milestone,” stated Rob Carter, director. “Add pre-existing state-owned lands in the project area and land enrolled in the federal Wetlands Reserve Program, and we’re rapidly approaching the halfway point of our goal in just over 2 ½ years.” HRI is a partnership of resource agencies and organizations working with landowners to provide a model that balances forest, farmland and natural resources conservation; connects separated parcels of public land to benefit wildlife; protects important wildlife habitat and rest areas for migratory birds; opens lands to public recreational activities; establishes areas for nature tourism; and provides clean water and protection from flooding to downstream landowners.
