Land and Water Stewardship

Stewardship Program

The Stewardship Program provides monitoring and management of conservation easements and lands held by DENR for stream and wetland mitigation. Restored or high-quality natural areas are protected through easement purchases or fee simple acquisitions. These state-held conservation lands must be managed in perpetuity to protect water quality, wildlife habitat and open space.

Stewardship activities include: 

  • Monitoring
  • Legal Protection and Enforcement
  • Site-management activities
