To develop the framework for a riparian conservation plan.
Review the state of the science, in collaboration with ARS and Penn State researchers, meeting on an approximately bi-weekly basis. Develop a literature review that summarizes major findings and provides a framework for establishing a Riparian Conservation Plan. This framework will relate agricultural production and conservation objectives to site conditions (stream, wetland, riparian index; nutrient and sediment runoff mitigation). Following the literature review, a 1-2 page handout summarizing the initiative will be developed for distribution to conservation and farming community stakeholders.
