Stream Conservation and Best Management Practices Field Day
As part of our ongoing work to support researchers and education and outreach efforts across the state, IFB helped support a Stream Conservation and Best Management Practices field day in August 2021. Through a partnership with researchers from Illinois State University and the University of Illinois, Shelby CFB hosted a field day in the county focused on sharing information with attendees about the significance of headwater streams and practices that can be implemented to protect them. Researchers were also able to share updates of ongoing research in the Kaskaskia River Watershed. At the end of the program, attendees were encouraged to join an optional visit to the Mitchell Creek to further discuss a variety of practices aimed at improving biodiversity and conservation.
