Protect. Enhance. Restore.
Since 1992, Ohio Wetlands Foundation has provided the highest quality compensatory mitigation by protecting, enhancing, and restoring Ohio’s aquatic resources. The Foundation, a private non-profit corporation established under section 501(c)(3), provides:
In-Lieu Fee (ILF) Mitigation Program
Ohio Wetlands Foundation is the first entity in Ohio to be approved to operate an ILF program since the 2008 federal rule was issued. OWF received approval of our ILF program for the USACE Pittsburgh and Huntington Districts. Contact Vince Messerly for more information on these programs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Aquatic Resource Mitigation Credits
Mitigation credits are available at multiple mitigation banks throughout Ohio.
Individual (Permittee-Responsible) or Specialized Mitigation Projects
The Foundation can provide a complete on-site or off-site mitigation solution when a mitigation bank is unavailable or incompatible with the impacted resource. The Foundation can assist with every step of the mitigation process from planning to construction to monitoring.
Partnerships with Public Entities and Conservation Based Non-Government Organizations (NGO)
Every project completed by the Foundation has a public or NGO partner. Involvement can exist as a third-party easement holder, long-term land steward, or mitigation bank partner. See our list of partners for examples.
