America's Watershed Initiative Summit held in Louisville, KY

Mississippi River Watershed Report Card preliminary resultsBill Dennison, Caroline Donovan, Brianne Walsh, Bill Nuttle and Heath Kelsey attended the America's Watershed Initiative Summit on October 1 and 2 to present a draft of the Mississippi River Watershed Report Card. The draft report card still needs refinement and clarification, but the presentation at the Summit was a major milestone in the development of the Version 1 Report Card. The report card project was begun over 1 year ago, and was developed through numerous workshops around the country, webinars, and conference calls. Leaders from the Mississippi River Basin discussed the Report Card, and provided useful feedback to advance the project. The report card will be finalized over the next several months by incorporating these suggestions, and will be released in Spring 2015.
