“We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.” ~Aldo Leopold, A Sand County Almanac
"CAFOs are only profitable because so much of the cost and damage is externalized onto the environment, neighbors and wildlife. The monitoring, supervision, clean-up, restitution, fines are not happening, thus the true cost of CAFOs never find the way onto the balance books." Talking point from the CAFO Conference.
"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated," Mahatma Gandhi
"Producers need to ask themselves what would the public think? How would ten people picked at random from an airport or bus station react to (your) animal rearing, transport or slaughter practices?"
Dr. Temple Grandin
These workshops will equip you to become a part of Crawford Stewardship Project's and Valley Stewardship Network’s water quality teams as part of the Wisconsin Water Action Volunteers program. We encourage landowners and community members to learn more about the water in our unique cold water spring, stream and river ecosystems that support trout and other fish and wildlife. You’ll receive training and all the equipment you’ll need free of charge. Water and habitat quality assessments only take about an hour each month – on your own schedule – and your citizen-based data becomes a key tool in our work to protect our area watersheds. Participants can attend one session to complete the training.
