Illinois Association of Drainage Districts 2023 Annual Conference
The IADD is excited to host the 2023 Annual conference in Bloomington, Illinois on January 19th and 20th.
On Day 2, three ISAP members (Ag Drainage Management Coalition, The Wetland Initiative, and The Nature Conservancy) will lead a session on Conservation Drainage Practice Adoption (description below).
Innovative Approaches to Scaling Up Conservation Practice Adoption in Tile Drained Landscapes | Edge of field conservation practices such as filter strips, constructed wetlands, saturated buffers, and more play an important role in reducing nutrient and sediment losses from agricultural lands. Several members of the IL Sustainable Ag Partnership (ISAP) are developing approaches that make implementation of these practices easier, more efficient, and more attractive to farmers and landowners. In this session, speakers from the Ag Drainage Management Coalition, The Wetland Initiative, and The Nature Conservancy will discuss opportunities to utilize these approaches at farm, drainage district and watershed scales throughout Illinois.
