You can’t underestimate the value that an event like the recent Indian Creek Watershed Project Field Tour. “It’s a real gem,” Ivan Dozier, Illinois State Conservationist with the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) told Chuck during one of the stops on the tour. He said he’s been involved in water shed planning for a long time, and it makes him feel good to see this project being so successful.
During the tour, Dozier said he’s been most impressed by the number of producers who are willing to take the chance with their livelihoods to have these conservation test plots. And he’s also pleased to see so many people from around the country coming out and seeing for themselves how it works. “Those people look at what’s going on here and start sharing some of those ideas, take them back with them, so they don’t have to start from scratch everywhere. They can start trying things in their areas.”
