This data layer indicates the probability that an area is a Restorable Wetland. It was developed by the Natural Resources Research Institute in collaboration with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. It was developed statewide on a 3 meter grid by applying machine learning models to predict the location of existing and restorable wetlands based on hydrological, geomorphological, and geological variables. Post-processing was done to remove existing wetlands and smooth the results. This information can help land managers identify areas that are most suitable for wetland restorations.
