Two men dig to put in plants on the bank of water in a wetland.

A man-made wetland is being enhanced with native grasses and plants on Lincoln University’s George Washington Carver Farm in Jefferson City. The Environmental Protection Agency Region 7, through the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, has provided partial funding for this project under Section 319 of the Clean Water Act. The 319 Grant funded construction of the wetland and an additional EPA Wetland Development Program Grant helped purchased 299 native grasses and plants that the Lincoln University’s Agriculture Department and Wildlife Club planted in the water and at the water’s edge.
