ABOUT

This video is a model our organization will follow The Wisconsin Farmer-Led Watershed Council Project:

Our Goals
  • Encourage farmer participation in MAEAP

  • 200 Farmers attending both Semi-Annual meetings per year.

  • 40 New practices over a 3 year period.

  • 20 New farms MAEAP Verified in 3 years.

  • 14,191 lbs. of phosphorus reduction in Western Lake Erie Basin.

  • 5% increase per year in acres of farmland covered by BMPs.

  • 10% retained acres of farmland covered by BMPs.

Watershed Regions
The Farmer-Led Watershed Conservation has divided the watershed into four focus regions: Northwest (NW), Northeast (NE), Southwest (SW), & Southeast (SE). There will be four meetings in each region during the 2018 year, dates TBA in the events tab. Each region has a representative. Below is a map displaying the four regions and their respective representatives.
