Over one-half (57%) of the 1,757 respondents to a random survey of North Dakota households agree that all remaining natural wetlands in the state should be preserved. Nearly two- thirds (63%) of the respondents support compensating landowners for preserving wetlands. However, the amount most respondents were willing to pay landowners was $10 or less per year. Over one-third (38%) of the respondents used wetlands for outdoor recreation. Responses were somewhat related to socioeconomic characteristics such as age, gender, income, education, and place of residence.
