Interior Announces Funding for Wetland Conservation

The department sets aside $111 million for conservation projects.

This past week, the Department of the Interior announced that $111 million in grants and partner funding had been approved by the Migratory Bird Conservation Commission for wetland conservation. The funding will be used to restore and conserve 177,000 acres (277 square miles) of land. The projects will be developed across 20 different states. 

According to Secretary Haaland, “These projects are great examples of the work we are accomplishing through the Biden-Harris administration’s America the Beautiful initiative, supporting locally led and locally designed conservation efforts and restoration approaches that will create jobs and support healthy communities. Working together, we can improve the habitat of the birds we love while conserving lands for everyone to enjoy.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For officials of the Interior Department as they seek to preserve endangered habitats. 
  • That Secretary Haaland would look to the Lord for direction in stewarding His creation.
  • For the president and his advisors as they make environmental decisions.
