Conservation In Action Tour 2010

What is agriculture doing to protect water quality and improve soil health? Find out on CTIC's Conservation in Action Tour 2010. Participants will visit farms and farmers in east central Virginia who have built successful, profitable farming operations through conservation and are providing their community with valuable ecosystem services. Recognizing, supporting and paying for agriculture’s ecosystem services – through government programs and new market-based approaches – will be explored and discussed with farmers, agricultural advisors, conservation professionals, private industry, policy makers and other stakeholders.
