A Conservation story Map

We are excited to share with you a new website from Illinois Farm Bureau called, "A Conservation Story Map"! This site gives farmers a place to tell their story and share the best management practices (BMPs) they use on their farms to protect water quality. In addition, the map provides local and regional program and cost-share information for farmers by watershed. The map highlights the diversity of practices used across Illinois, and shows that there isn’t a “one size fits all” solution to the nutrient issue. Check out the map here:
