Mississippi River Basin Initiative:
Little Wea Creek
Through the Mississippi River Basin Healthy Watersheds Initiative (MRBI), NRCS and their partners work with producers and landowners to implement voluntary conservation practices that improve water quality, restore wetlands, enhance wildlife habitat and sustain agricultural profitability in the Mississippi River Basin.
NRCS provides cost share to help pay for conservation practices, such as cover crops, filter strips or nutrient management. Producers visit our office to apply, applications are then ranked, and those that address priority resource concerns are funded. Funding is available through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP).
Interested applicants should contact Mark Eastman, NRCS District Conservationist, at 765-474-9992, extension 3.
