Miller Creek Project
The Miller Creek project supports the Iowa Nutrient Reduction Strategy and the Iowa Water Quality Initiative by working with producers in Black Hawk County’s Miller Creek Watershed to implement practices to improve water quality in the Upper and Lower Miller Creek Huc-12 watersheds. This innovative education-based project features a digital learning commons for producers to learn about conservation practices and water quality, a social media campaign, quarterly webinars, biannual hands-on workshops, and monthly informal networking events for producers.
The Miller Creek project aims to increase opportunities for hands-on learning, foster peer-to-peer learning through increased networking opportunities, and begin to shift social norms in favor of conservation. The project is funded by the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship’s Water Quality Initiative.
