Communicating Edge-of-Field Practices to Landowners
Wednesday, March 8, 2022 at 2pm CT – View the Recording

As conservation and water professionals, we think a lot about how to effectively communicate conservation agriculture to producers and landowners. But how do we go about communicating edge-of-field practices where the benefit is largely downstream?

This edition of The Current Webinar Series explored the latest research on landowner perceptions on constructed wetlands, riparian forest buffers, and more. We also heard from folks working on the ground – what have they found works and what definitely doesn’t? Join us!

Featured Speakers:
  • Thad Rhodes, District Forester, Kansas Forest Service
  • Cole Soldo, Conservation Outreach Coordinator, Conservation Biology Institute
  • John Swanson, Water Resources Supervisor, Polk County Public Works
