Levy Prairie 2
Kelly McPherson walks along the Spanish moss draped trail in the Levy Prairie wetland basin near Gainesville, FL. This wetland basin is home bobcat, wood duck, muskrat, bald eagle, sandhill crane and other wildlife species. This public land features six and a half miles of trails, which weave through Florida’s unique wetland landscape. In the late 1960s, ranchers built levees around the area, dug canals and continually kept it drained for pastures to raise cattle. In 2001, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) worked with a local rancher return the land to its natural state. The landowner enrolled the land into a conservation easement through the former Wetlands Reserve Program, which provides financial assistance for farmers, ranchers and forest landowners who transform working lands into wetlands. The 2014 Farm Bill merged this program with two other easement programs, forming the Agricultural Conservation Easements Program. USDA NRCS photo.
