A new program from the North Dakota Game and Fish Department lets landowners set aside property in hopes to preserve nature. 

The Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program or CREP hopes to get 20,000 acres set aside in 17 counties across southern North Dakota.

Landowners who take part in the program will get paid with a combination of state and federal money.

Its main goal is to take sensitive agricultural land and set it aside for conservation. 

Kevin Kading, from the ND Game and Fish Department is the private lands section leader, and he says, “These high priority conservation goals like with the CREP is high priority conservation goal and resource concerns. The main benefit to a CREP is really targeting those efforts and trying to get the most benefit by doing that for wildlife, for water quality and pollinating insects.

There is no minimum land amount needed to join CREP.
