MICHIGAN AGRICULTURE ENVIRONMENTAL ASSURANCE PROGRAM
Water pollution comes from many sources, and some of it comes from farms. That's why Mason-Lake Conservation District is standing by to help you enroll in the Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program (MAEAP)
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.
