In 2011, Martin SWCD received funding for the Local Ecotype Project from the Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative – Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources (LCCMR). The project ended in 2014. It was a very exciting three years! The focus of this project was to accelerate the seed availability of declining species for use on restoration projects. One of the main goals was to increase the number of plants and protected populations for each species.
