GRANVILLE, N.D. (AP) — Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring is introducing a program to help landowners enhance their property and restore habitat damaged by overland flooding, erosion and infestation by noxious and invasive species.

Goehring says the Land Enhancement and Habitat Renewal Program will provide up to 50 percent reimbursement of most costs associated with reclamation, landscaping, soil conditioning, revegetation and weed control.

Goehring announced the new program Wednesday during a public meeting in Granville, where many area farms were heavily impacted by the 2011 Souris River floods.

Proposed projects must involve land that has at least 10 percent woody vegetation or be adjacent to wooded vegetation.
