Grants given to 10 Wisconsin watershed groups

The Nature Conservancy has awarded a total of 100-thousand dollars to ten Wisconsin farmer-led conservation groups.

The awards are between five and ten thousand dollars each thanks to support from the Sally Mead Foundation to help farmers implement practices that support soil and water quality on their land and in their communities, while also benefitting their economic bottom line.

The Nature Conservancy says priority for awarding their grants was based on the creativity of the cost-sharing programs, and to newer, less established farmer-led watershed groups.

The full list of recipients is listed below:

  • Rush Creek Watershed Conservation Council
  • Fond du Lac Co. Watersheds Alliance
  • Kenosha Regenerative Producers Group
  • Eau Pleine Partnership for Integrated Conservation
  • Red Cedar Conservation Farmers
  • Clean Farm Families
  • Bad Axe Watershed Stewards
  • Rock River Regenerative Graziers
  • Farmers for Lake Country
  • Coon Creek Community Watershed Council
