Abstract:

Implementation of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) and Wetlands Reserve Program (WRP) has resulted in the restoration of > 2 million ha of wetland and grassland habitats in the Prairie Pothole Region (PPR). Restoration of wetland habitats through these conservation programs are perceived to provide various ecosystem services such as increasing plant diversity, providing wildlife habitat, improving soil and water quality, and sequestering carbon. However, little work has been conducted to quantify and evaluate environmental benefits achieved by these programs. To address this need, the USDA initiated the National Assessment component of the Conservation Effects Assessment Project (CEAP) to provide scientifically credible estimates of environmental benefits obtained from USDA conservation practices and programs. The CEAP-Wetlands component consists of 10 collaborative regional assessments to quantify the effects of conservation practices on ecosystem services provided by wetlands on agricultural landscapes. The focus of this presentation is on the CEAP PPR assessment that was initiated during 2004 by the U.S. Geological Survey in collaboration with the USDA. The goal of the PPR assessment was to develop approaches to facilitate estimation of ecological services provided by conservation practices in the PPR and use these approaches to quantify changes in ecosystem services resulting from wetland catchment restoration activities funded by USDA conservation programs.
