Dale Aden is a third-generation farmer in the Midwestern US state of Minnesota. For years, he watched the Okabena Creek flood and destroy his crops and farmland. After the losses took their toll, Aden decided to return the land to wildlife. He participated in a conservation program called Reinvest in Minnesota. The program pays farmers to sell their marginal land, and return it to its natural state. Now much of Dale Aden’s farmland has become wetland, full of wildlife.
