A free, one-hour webinar on Monday, Dec. 3 will offer tips on increasing farmer involvement in watershed projects. CTIC’s Indian Creek Watershed Project partners will host to share their insight. “Increasing Producer Involvement in Watershed Projects: Lessons from Indian Creek,” will be held from 1:00 to 2:00 pm Central Standard Time.
The webinar is the first in a series by the Great Rivers & Upstream Heroes Watershed Implementation & Innovation Network (WIIN), a new forum for idea exchange about watershed projects in the Mississippi River Basin. WIIN is organized by the Conservation Technology Information Center (CTIC) and The Nature Conservancy Great Rivers Project, with funding from The Mosaic Company, the McKnight Foundation and Monsanto.

“There are so many creative projects going on all over the Mississippi River Basin, but it’s easy for watershed project managers to feel isolated or anxious to compare notes with colleagues in other areas,” notes Karen A. Scanlon, executive director of CTIC. “WIIN will create an online library of user-contributed materials on watershed projects throughout the Basin, and a forum for conversations and idea sharing among project managers. The webinar series is another way watershed project managers can learn about practices that are working in the field, and develop ways to scale them up or adapt them to their local needs.”
