Preserve Restoration

KPC has restored 2,500 acres of wetlands and is now restoring and improving grasslands. Prairie grasses absorb and hold floodwaters back from downstream, wetlands filter water and improve water quality, and both ecosystems provide foraging, roosting, and nesting habitat for resident and migratory waterfowl, shorebirds, and upland species.  A sustainable grazing plan on KPC’s Warren Ranch ensures that present and future generations have the water resources they need.
