Jackson-Frazier Wetland

Program Introduction

The Jackson-Frazier Wetland is a valuable natural resource for Benton County, and a popular natural site for county residents. As a partner of Benton County Natural Areas and Parks, AFRANA has established a dedicated fund for maintenance of the Bob Frenkel Boardwalk, as well as fundraising and outreach support for wetland restoration, and interpretive & educational opportunity development.

Benton County Natural Areas and Parks has developed a wetland restoration plan to meet these main goals:

  1. Restore wetland hydrology through surface contouring, upland feature reduction, and increased soil saturation.

  2. Restore vegetation diversity through woody plant reduction, invasive weed control, and native vegetation seeding.

  3. Increase environmental education and outreach opportunities through habitat restoration demonstration areas, educational signage, and volunteer group stewardship work.

You can help out by volunteering or donating or both! Thanks for your consideration.
