“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.
“A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability, and beauty of the biotic community. It is wrong when it tends otherwise.”
~Aldo Leopold, 1948. A Sand County Almanac.
Water Quality Monitoring
CSP Water Monitoring Project
By Kathy Byrne
Nutrient runoff is a major threat to our waters and Crawford Stewardship Project is participating in the Water Action Volunteers (WAV) total phosphorus testing on the streams we monitor. WAV is a statewide program for Wisconsin citizens who want to learn about and improve the quality of Wisconsin’s streams and rivers. The program is coordinated through a partnership between the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and the University of Wisconsin – Cooperative Extension.
Volunteers gather information on the health of their local streams from May-October. The local WAV programs are sponsored by Valley Stewardship Network and Crawford Stewardship Project to monitor streams in the Kickapoo and adjacent watersheds. Trainings for this program are offered by Valley Stewardship Network, are free and available to any interested member of the public.
