Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program
The Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program (CREP) is a voluntary conservation program that rewards producers and landowners for installing conservation practices on their land to improve water quality and wildlife habitat. The Weed Control and Wildlife Program has served CREP landowners in the Capital RC&D region for six years. The goal of this program is to optimize the water quality and habitat improvements that are intended by CREP conservation practices.
