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.
