Our watershed projects are models for how farmers and ranchers around the country can save land and water—on a large scale. We help farmers adopt soil health and structural practices that build up the soil; improve its productivity; and reduce water, nutrient, and soil runoff — improving in-stream water quality outcomes.
But we can’t do it alone. That’s why we partner with agricultural trade associations and environmental groups alike, forming a middle ground to find consensus and actionable solutions. When necessary, we bring in outside experts like consultants with in-stream monitoring and watershed modeling skills. We also form diverse partnerships and steering committees that include the right stakeholders from the federal, state, and local levels-–both private and public.
And we never lose sight of the farmers themselves—who need viable options helping the environment but also improving their ability to stay in business and thrive.
