We support farmer leadership and collaborative action, so farms and fish thrive together
Connect Online & On-Air
Our programming features real people doing real work on land they care about. Meet people who persist and make connections and progress, even when the work feels disjointed and messy. See what farmer-driven groups are doing. Ask questions. Think together about how to build shared work where you live.
Fund Your Local Project
Each year we award funding from National Fish Habitat Partnership-U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to work on locally-led projects in Upper Mississippi River Basin watersheds. Funded projects engage landowners; improve farms and fish habitat; address a root cause of watershed problems; support communications, monitoring, science or construction; and align with our Strategic Plan.
Participate in a Workshop
At a Watershed Leaders Network workshop, meet people who are teaming up with neighbors to use, share and expand profitable, sustainable agricultural practices. In an active, collaborative environment hear their stories and challenges, call conversations about topics that matter to you, assess your local assets and needs, and identify next wise steps with input from peers who share your goals.
