The Trust has a long history of working with industries wishing to voluntarily contribute to conservation. By working with a vast network of partners throughout the state we have successfully implemented projects including:
- Grass restoration
- Wetland restoration
- Species preservation
- Land protection
- Advancing scientific knowledge
With the support of industry champions and our delivery network we have restored over 800 acres to high diversity native prairie for the benefit of the Dakota skipper and other species who depend on native prairie.
Voluntary energy contributions have been used on public and private lands to restore wetlands that are vital to a functioning ecosystem. Wetlands provide many functions including water storage, water quality improvement, wildlife and plant habitat and ground water infiltration.
We have supported the advancement of the science for the Dakota skipper butterfly by coordinating statewide surveys and the release of propagated skipper progeny back to native habitats.
Working in partnership with industry, state and federal partners, we have facilitated the protection of key habitat for Whooping Cranes.
Through the support of industry, conservation partners and landowners, the Trust is working to demonstrate how cattle ranching, energy development and carbon capture can be aligned to provide the sustainable growth for the energy industry, ranchers, and wildlife of North Dakota.
