April 8 – Salt in the Water: Action on the Ground
Each winter, billions of pounds of salt are spread on America's roads to keep drivers and pedestrians safe. But all this salt poses a major health risk to both humans and wildlife. Join us to learn about how excessive salt affects benthic macroinvertebrates and other aquatic life in freshwater streams, and how one local community group is raising awareness and changing behavior around salt in the community!
April 15 – Agriculture: Water Quality Problem or Solution?
Agriculture can get a bad rap when it comes to discussions about water quality and water pollution. It’s important to remember, however, that this same industry also holds the keys to significantly reduce common water quality issues in hot spots such as the Great Lakes, Mississippi River, and Chesapeake Bay. Healthy soil, plants, wildlife, water quality, and public health are all closely intertwined. By working with Mother Nature, rather than against her, farmers can support diverse ecosystems, clean water, and a growing population all while improving their bottom line economically.
