Working With Agriculture to Improve Water Quality

The Nature Conservancy is working with a coalition of farmers, University of Wisconsin scientists and county, state and federal agencies in two Wisconsin watersheds to blend sustainable agriculture with improved water quality in streams.

Known as the Wisconsin Buffer Initiative, the group hopes to improve water quality by using science to target conservation efforts on those fields and pastures with the greatest potential for contributing nutrients like phosphorus to streams. Our work contributes to cleaner water in the Mississippi River and the Great Lakes.
