Watershed Planning Meeting

The Mississippi North Central Watershed was identified as a priority in the Illinois Nutrient Loss Reduction Strategy (NLRS). As such, it is one of the state’s most critical watersheds. Illinois Farm Bureau (IFB), together with multiple County Farm Bureaus, Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCD), the University of Illinois (U of I) Extension, and Northwater Consulting are committed to sharing NLRS information with farmers across the watershed, listening to conservation needs and concerns, and prioritizing work for watershed planning purposes.

Knox County Farm Bureau will be hosting its planning meeting on August 10 at 6PM at the Agri Center. Dinner will be provided. RSVP's are due August 3 to the office. More information can be found HERE. Information on the Mississippi North Central Watershed can be found HERE.
