Welcome to the WRAPS Website!
Thank you for visiting the Kansas WRAPS website, your one stop shop for information about Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategy (WRAPS) projects and resources in Kansas.
The Kansas WRAPS offers a framework that engages citizens and other stakeholders in a teamwork environment aimed at protecting and restoring Kansas watersheds. The WRAPS framework consists of:
•Identifying the watershed restoration and protection needs
•Establishing watershed goals
•Creating plans to achieve the established goals
•Implementing the plans
Each watershed served by a WRAPS team completing the program framework is eligible for WRAPS grant funding. The WRAPS funds are administered by a program advisory board, the WRAPS Work Group.
The WRAPS program is unique because the natural resource agencies of Kansas, supported by the Environmental Protection Agency, are seeking citizen and stakeholder input on how to best manage and protect our watersheds. Through WRAPS, local, state and federal program resources are being streamlined to do just that. Participation from stakeholders like you is essential to the success of the WRAPS program.
