Regional Conservation Partnership Program

 Regional ConservationThis project is a collaboration with Prof. Jennifer Tank at the University of Notre Dame, and also involves numerous partners from state and federal agencies, NGO’s, and the private sector. The research involves a multi-year, watershed-scale, manipulation of land cover (winter cover crops) and stream restoration (two-stage ditch). The goal is to determine the effects of these conservation practices on water quality and biogeochemical processes when implemented on a large spatial scale.
