Working Watersheds: Buffers & Beyond

Working Watersheds: Buffers & Beyond

Trees Forever’s Working Watersheds: Buffers & Beyond program helps to improve water quality, soil retention and habitat improvement by working with Iowa landowners to implement conservation practices and promote land stewardship.

Trees Forever staff assists Working Watersheds program participants with project planning, planting and maintenance plans. We can provide a 50 percent cost share (up to a maximum of $2,000) to implement a water quality project or demonstration site.  Riparian buffer plantings are the main focus of the program, but other innovative projects are also considered.
