Everyone – from the expert to the concerned citizen – has a role to play in improving the health of their community’s watershed.
The Wisconsin Potato and Vegetable Growers Association (WPVGA) is a proud partner of the Little Plover Watershed Enhancement Project, a community-led initiative in central Wisconsin working to address challenges around the Little Plover River. Local, state, academic, and non-profit partners are working together to improve the health of the Little Plover River watershed and the quality of life of the surrounding community.
Community-based initiatives are an effective way to tackle watershed challenges. The community identifies the issues and engages with partners who can provide knowledge and expertise to help inform decision-making. Working together, the collaboration can identify effective and locally-appropriate solutions.
As WPVGA celebrates American Wetlands Month this May, we are pleased to share a suite of videos that highlights this initiative and explores the important role each of the partners – including WPVGA – plays in identifying and implementing solutions.
