Why Restore the Pioneer Park Wetland?

Pioneer Park is a unique type of wetland system located in the city of Blaine. It contains a variety of very uncommon wetland plant species that are rarely found elsewhere in the state.  Due to a lack of targeted management, the presence of non-native (introduced) and invasive (weedy) plant species, along with historic attempts to ditch and drain the wetland, the wetland is degrading in quality and unique species and habitats are unsustainable without restoration and management.

By completing targeted restoration and management work, historic ditches can be filled and properly revegetated, and invasive or weedy species can be controlled. Targeted management work will protect and improve the unique wetland habitats found within Pioneer Park and promote biodiversity.
