Sands to Silts and Clays: Building Soil Health in a Diverse Watershed
The Lower Kankakee Watershed Initiative partnered with the Isaak Walton league of America, the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), and Understanding Ag to host a workshop geared towards building soil heath in the Kankakee Watershed. Stephanie McClain with Indiana NRCS explains slake test demonstrations and Doug Peterson with Understanding Ag talks soil health!
Grand Kankakee Paddle
In October 2020, we hosted a paddle trip on the Kankakee River through the Lasalle Fish and Wildlife Area. This paddle trip took participants along a 4 mile stretch of the river where there are some great bayous to explore. There were presentations given by the LaSalle Property Manager, Zach DeYoung and the District Fisheries Specialist, Tom Bacula. These presentations gave an overview of the area, highlighted recreation opportunities, and emphasized the importance of water quality. The paddlers enjoyed a great day on the river!
