Protecting Natural Resources

Illinois Farm Bureau supports the important conservation efforts of our farmer members. That includes educating the public about practices being used on the farm. Using video, social media and other channels, we are helping the public see exactly why Illinois farmers’ conservation efforts should be applauded.

At the center of the campaign, a new website,, contains insightful videos that showcase a variety of innovative conservation practices. In under two minutes, visitors can learn how woodchip bioreactors preserve water, how no-till practices protect land or how pollinator habitats improve the food supply. With new content added often, the website is designed to grow.

As we highlight the important conservation efforts Illinois farmers use today, we welcome you to join us in our efforts. Visit, enjoy video content, and please share this site with people you know. Collectively, we can impact public opinions through effective education.
