The "Fishers and Farmers" is an organization we first learned about back in 2017 at our Annual Meeting in La Crosse. They are now doing really exciting outreach - radio programs and online conversations. (Heidi Keuler of Fishers and Farmers spoke at our Annual Meeting - here's the video of her talk at that meeting.)
Today, Fishers and Farmers is reaching out virtually to people through web conversations and radio programs. Their Boots on the Ground conversation series and Neighbor to Neighbor streaming radio program and podcasts introduce us to people who are working together now, to protect places they care about, right where they live.
The next program will be a conversation with a local group of people working to make tangible differences in the Root River in Minnesota. Here's a list of upcoming and past programs that you can access on the Fishers and Farmers website:
- January 21 - Root River Field to Stream Partnership
- December 19 - Tainter Creek Farmer-Led Watershed Council
- November 19 - Iowa's Black Hawk Creek Soil & Water Coalition
- October 19 - Fishers & Farmers Combines Sustainable Farming & Stream Management
