MAEAP Exceeds 5,000 Verifications

Farms across the state have been recognized as outstanding stewards.

Thanks to the hard work of the Mason-Lake Conservation District and our various partners, more than 5,000 farms across the state have been recognized as outstanding stewards of their land and water. 

MAEAP helps farmers adopt cost-effective practices that reduce erosion and runoff into ponds, streams, and rivers. This, in turn, helps farmers comply with state and federal laws. MAEAP is a voluntary program. We recognize and reward top stewards of the land. This is a state program delivered by conservation districts, local leaders you know. MAEAP is open to any Michigan farmer.

There are four categories of recognition: 1) Cropping, 2) Livestock, 3) Farmstead, and 4) Forest, Wetlands, and Habitat.
