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.

Over the last three years Network initiatives and other projects leveraging Network resources have generated over $5.4 million in additional funds for extension in the North Central Region. Join us on our journey to turn science into success!

NETWORK NEWS
We are excited to announce that the Network’s green infrastructure team recently released their whitepaper aimed at helping communities adopt green infrastructure practices to address climate and do so in a way that addresses social equity and environmental justice. The paper is intended to provide community development professionals, extension and Sea Grant educators, and water professionals recommendations for integrating green infrastructure projects into their community in ways that address broader societal burdens exasperated by climate change including pollution and lack of access to green space.
