Videos: WLEB Conservation Efforts Briefing

 

USDA

 

It was announced on March 28, 2016, by Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack that the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) will invest $41 million in a three-year initiative to support the work of farmers in Ohio, Michigan and Indiana to improve water quality in the Western Lake Erie Basin (WLEB). The initiative helps farmers and ranchers implement science-based conservation measures to reduce runoff from farms entering the region’s waterways.

Below are videos of the briefing held at the Maumee State Bay Park in Oregon, Ohio.
