Rain Barrel Conservation
Participants will gather in person for this hands-on workshop to learn how to turn a used, food-grade barrel into a rain barrel, why it is important to capture rainwater, and how to maintain your barrel. Attendees will retrofit their barrel and take it home from the workshop.
What is a Commodity Buffer? Unlike any other buffer program in the nation, the commodity buffer is an opportunity to showcase a practice that works on all fronts! It compensates a producer for the actual value of the ground, can help provide regulatory certainty for the agricultural community, and protects water quality.
Family Forest Fish Program Passage
A voluntary program where landowners can receive financial and technical assistance for the removal of fish barriers on their property. A fish barrier is any artificial (human-caused) in-stream structure that impedes the free passage of fish, such as culverts, dams, weirs, and road crossings.
