FILE - This 2005 photo provided by the North Dakota Game and Fish Department shows waterfowl swimming on wetland in McHenry County, N D. The federal government is setting aside $35 million over three years to help landowners conserve wetlands and grasslands in the five-state Prairie Pothole Region. The money is part of an incentive program built into the farm bill that President Obama signed into law. Wildlife officials say the region of North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa and Montana provides important breeding and nesting habitat for more than 60 percent of the nation's migratory waterfowl.
