MRBPLG Fall 2018 Meeting

The Fall MRBPLG meeting was held on October 31 at the Stroede Center, 319 Wayne Ave., Defiance.

Sara Guiher, Water Quality Planner with TMACOG, provided an update on the NPS-IS Watershed Planning Process in the Maumee AOC.

John Blakeman and Wil Hemker presented “Integrated Planting of Tallgrass Prairie Nutrient Retention STRIPS with Annual Row Crops” The artful use of prairie plantings to slow runoff volumes and velocities, while capturing algal nutrients and sediments will have multiple applications in that region.
