At the North Central Region Water Network, we are dedicated to enhancing connectivity and learning, sharing the latest Extension research and knowledge across the region, strengthening the resource base for Extension education, and coordinating initiatives with measurable short and long term impacts.

In the last two years Network Initiatives reported receiving over 1,707,739 in additional funds for their projects – that’s a success rate of 49%. Join us on our journey to turn science into success!

NETWORK NEWS

In February 2019, the Network helped plan a Great Lakes to Gulf Summit bringing farmers, fisherman, farm advisors, agency professionals, land-grant personnel, NGOs and watershed coordinators together to discuss increasing farmer and farm advisor engagement in watershed management and established strategies for increasing conservation practice adoption. Check out this new video on the summit and how fishers, farmers, and partners are coming together to address gulf hypoxia.
