October 21: Increased Water Quality Enhancement Wetlands and Oxbows = Improved Water Quality and More Wildlife
Join us as we explore a few different wetlands and oxbows in the state! We will examine funding programs and hear about the water quality benefits measured through the latest science-based techniques. In addition, we will look at how these water quality enhancement wetlands and oxbows can be used as part of risk management and nutrient reductions plans, as well as providing needed wildlife habitat in key locations. This highly interactive virtual field day will be a discussion between landowners, scientists, and wildlife specialists and virtual field day participants.
