MN FarmWise aims to clean up, protect streams

The Freshwater Society and several partners are organizing a community-based farmer-to-farmer initiative designed to protect streams by supporting the voluntary adoption of conservation measures on agricultural lands. The project, planned by an advisory group that includes farmers and other agricultural professionals, is a partnership between Freshwater, the National Park Service and Cannon River Watershed Partners. It is sponsored by The Mosaic Company Foundation. The program will focus during its first year on Rice Creek, a trout stream in Rice County. Learn more about FarmWise.
