Pfiefer Conservation Easement 1


The restoration of this site will measurably contribute to the restoration of watershed function in the impaired Cannon Watershed. Impairment of watershed function resulting from widespread agricultural drainage will be corrected incrementally, by carry out projects such as the proposed site across the watershed. In addition to water-quality and watershed-function benefits, restoration of these sites will provide substantial aquatic habitat benefits for fish and wildlife.
