The Wetland Program's mission is to protect and improve Kickapoo Nation's water quality and increase wildlife habitat. Protecting Delaware river, streams, ponds, wetlands, and groundwater quality keeps these waters safe for a multitude of beneficial uses such as drinking water, fish habitat, recreation and irrigation. This is accomplished by monitoring and assessing the existing wetlands, implementing best management practices to improve and restore existinbg and historic wetland sites, and providing outreach and education to the local community on the importance of wetlands.
