Construction at Withlacoochee Wetland Mitigation Bank

Withlacoochee Wetland Mitigation Bank has been under construction over the past year. Over 49,000 trees were planted throughout the site. 12.7 acres were converted from pasture with historical wetland signatures to reestablished wetlands. Ditches and drainage canals that once drained the property have been filled restoring hydrology to the 734.5 acre mitigation bank site. Two low water crossings were installed to aid in the unimpeded flow of water across the site.


Audubon of Florida is pleased to count Mitigation Marketing as one of our partners in conservation in Florida. We have found Mitigation Marketing to be a true innovator in the mitigation industry. Dennis Benbow and his staff are pioneering important efforts in both the Wetlands and Conservation banking fields. Mitigation Marketing is demonstrating that carefully thought out Wetlands and Conservation mitigation banks can be an important factor in the effort to conserve and restore many thousands of acres of what is best in Florida’s wildlife habitats and natural resources.
