Targeted Wetland Restorations to Reduce Agricultural Nutrient Loads Webinar

Wednesday, June 24, 2020 - 12:00pm

Iowa Learning Farms will host a webinar on Wednesday, June 24 at noon about the potential that targeted wetland restorations have to reduce agricultural nutrient loads. Over the past 15 years, over 90 wetlands have been restored through the Iowa Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program with the explicit goal of intercepting and reducing nonpoint source nitrate loads. William Crumpton, university professor in ecology, evolution and organismal biology at Iowa State University, will summarize results from 15 years of work on Iowa CREP wetlands, including nutrient removal, GHG emissions, and hydrology. The research presented in this webinar is one of the largest and longest running projects of its kind and helps to clarify the potential benefits and limitations of targeted wetland restorations.
