Kickapoo Landowners: Conservation Options for Your Land and Programs to fund this work!
The Kickapoo Boots-on-the-Ground Collaborative, a network of grassroots conservation organizations, focuses on promoting a wide variety of conservation practices that will conserve soil and reduce runoff on your land and in your watershed. Our staff from Southwest Badger RC&D, the Kickapoo Grazing Initiative and Valley Stewardship Network will evaluate the resources on your land and help you access programs you need to make it happen. We have information about the new NRCS Mississippi River Basin Healthy Watersheds Initiative (MRBI) funding within the Kickapoo as well as general Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) funding. Staff from NRCS will be attending both events. See full workshop flyer here for speakers and info (click here)
Our full KGI and Great River Graziers 2017 outreach schedule (TBA) is currently being developed. Check back here -- we hope to have the full schedule available later in March.
