General Information

The Middle-Platte Rainwater Basin Agricultural Mitigation Bank (MRAMB) is the first mitigation bank of its kind in Nebraska under the new Natural Resources Conservation Service Wetland Mitigation Banking Program.

It is located on a portion of a ~320 acre site along the “Big Bend” reach of the Platte River and is situated between the middle and south channel of this iconic Great Plains waterway.

The site is within a region known to have high environmental values, located within the Platte River Recovery Implementation Program area and in close proximity to numerous other State and non-profit conservation properties.

MRAMB is a multi-benefit project that preserves the environmental functions of wetlands, such as groundwater recharge; benefiting upland wildlife including pheasants and deer. Located in critical habitat for whooping cranes, the site enhances water quality, and offers crane viewing opportunities as well as aesthetics.
