Wetland Restoration Program
for Landowners

Wildlife-friendly fencing surrounds a highlands pond, protecting the water and fragile banks from livestock impacts.

OHA’s Wetland Restoration Program For Landowners helps property owners in the Okanogan Highlands reach their conservation goals on privately owned land. 

Funding Requests, up to $1500, will be considered for projects that:

  • are located in the Okanogan Highlands
  • fit with OHA’s goals and values
  • demonstrate need
  • have a clear plan

Approved applicants will be reimbursed for costs associated with their wetland restoration or protection project, up to the approved amount.

This application is open, on a rolling basis, year-round. Applications will be reviewed as they are received.
