This week, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resource Conservation Service announced that over the next four years they will invest $5.3 million in projects on the Kickapoo River.
“This is good news for Wisconsin and the entire region,” said U.S. Rep. Ron Kind (D-WI). “Investing in water quality, agriculture and supporting conservation is critically important to our way of life. These projects will benefit our economy and our ecology for years to come.”
One of the watersheds to receive funding is the Kickapoo River, which travels between Ontario and La Farge. Partners working with this project include the Crawford and Vernon County Land Conversation Departments, among others.
