Heartland to Gulf: Farmers Helping Fisheries

The Mississippi and Atchafalaya River Basins (MARB) Watershed Leadership Network works to enhance learning among farmer and non-farmer leaders engaged in watershed management across Hypoxia Task Force member states in the Mississippi and Atchafalaya River Basins (MARB).

The network is drawing from existing watershed training programs and successful farmer-led watershed efforts and bringing the best of those programs to high priority watersheds in Hypoxia Task Force member states.

This film discusses the need for farmer-led watershed improvement by bringing producers to the gulf coast region to see downstream impact and equipping them with the knowledge and resources to become watershed leaders in their areas.
