Wisconsin, Upper Michigan, Minnesota, Iowa, and Illinois
The fascinating diversity of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, insects, and plants found in a wetland makes these habitats uniquely valuable. Many hours of enjoyment can be found viewing and exploring nature in wetlands. In many parts of the Midwest, people have purchased abandoned farms as recreational properties. These farms often contain wetlands that were drained and ditched for agriculture.
Cason Land & Water Management, LLC servicing Wisconsin, Upper Michigan, Iowa, Illinois, and Minnesota, can help restore these damaged wetlands and bring back their habitat diversity. We can even help create wildlife ponds and scrapes in upland areas that serve as filtration reservoirs and improve the habitat.
Wetlands provide critical habitats for hundreds of plant and animal species. They also play an important role in reducing the impacts of flooding by controlling the flow of surface water. Wetlands protect lakes, rivers, and streams from potentially damaging land-use activities by acting as a natural filter. They prevent soil erosion and even help slow the onset of global warming by removing and trapping greenhouse gasses from the environment. Because wetlands play such an essential role, the need to protect and restore them has never been greater.
The biologists at Cason Land & Water Management, LLC understand that wetlands are among the most biologically productive natural ecosystems in the world. When wetlands become damaged or destroyed by human or natural activities, Cason Land & Water Management, LLC has the knowledge, experience, and resources to provide native habitat planning and restoration services. These services range from developing wetland restoration plans to hands-on activities such as plan implementation and wetland management. Components of a successful wetland restoration include habitat improvements focused on creating a natural environment, ideal for resident birds to nest, spawning areas for native fish species, a habitat for reptiles and amphibians, a resting area for migrating birds, and a diverse community of native plants. Wetlands are an essential ecosystem, especially within Wisconsin, Upper Michigan, Minnesota, Iowa, and Illinois.
Education and experience are vital to the success of any project. Each biologist at Cason Land & Water Management holds a degree in an environmentally related field and regularly participates in various educational events to stay abreast of new findings and techniques. Their training and experience include wetland delineation, wetland restoration project development, invasive species management, and habitat improvement. Staff biologists are well versed in state and federal laws regarding wetland regulations and permitting, and work closely with regulatory agencies. In addition, the staff has experience coordinating larger projects, which require effective communication between several parties.
