IASWCD Announces Recipients of 2018 River Friendly Farmer Award

SHARE

Since 1999, key conservation and agricultural organizations have sponsored the River Friendly Farmer (RFF) Program. The statewide initiative recognizes farmers who help keep Indiana’s rivers, lakes and streams clean through good production management practices.

Annually, each county Soil and Water Conservation District may nominate up to two farmers who do an outstanding job of protecting their rivers, lakes and streams through their everyday conservation management practices on the farm. Watershed organizations also may nominate farmers for the award by submitting an application to a county SWCD.

This year’s recipients will be awarded at an award ceremony on Wednesday, August 15, at the Indiana State Fairgrounds.
