About Wetland Restoration and Training LLC
Wetland Restoration and Training LLC was established in 2014 by Tom Biebighauser with the mission of encouraging and helping people build naturally appearing and functioning wetlands. Tom had heard from many landowners and natural resource managers that it was almost impossible for someone to learn how to build a wetland, and that that actually building wetlands was extremely expensive. To make matters worse, the few people building wetlands were using techniques with a success rate of less than 50-percent.
Tom learned how to build wetlands, streams, ponds, and lakes the hard way through trial and error. Building his first wetlands in Minnesota in 1979 while working for the US Forest Service, he has since built thousands of wetlands after moving to Kentucky in 1988. Less than one-half of the early wetlands he built held water as planned. Over time, through much anguish and relentless work, he developed innovative techniques for constructing wetlands that are consistently 100-percent successful and low cost.
