Watershed News and Events

Healthy lakes, rivers, and streams are highly valued, and many individuals and organizations have a stake in how water resources are managed.

This is reflected in a constant stream of information about water-related laws and regulations, events, hands-on activities, controversies, studies, initiatives, trends, and emerging concerns. We want watershed stakeholders to follow the ever-changing landscape of water science and stewardship with us. We share news affecting the Vermillion River Watershed in our newsletter and on our website’s calendar, news media releases, photo gallery, and news briefs. Give us your ideas on how you would like us to keep you in the loop.
