MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Land owners along the Mississippi River in Tennessee may be eligible for a wetlands reserve enhancement program.
Under the Wetlands Reserve Program, they could get financial and technical assistance with increasing bottomland forest acreage and enhancing water quality.
Landowners enrolling in a voluntary program can receive up to $3,150 per acre for placing an easement on the land. The sign-up period ends Monday, June 18.
Eligible land is between the river and its primary levees -- land in an active flood plain.
