Our Water Quality Program

Planting trees on farms and along shorelines slows runoff and prevents nutrients from entering local lakes, rivers, and streams. Our Water Quality Program establishes demonstration farms and conducts research into how agroforestry systems can meet the challenge of the water crisis.
