Iowa Learning Farms Webinar: Water Quality Wetlands in Iowa

June 14, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join Iowa Learning Farms June 14 at noon for a presentation by Shane Wulf, wetlands project manager for the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship (IDALS), covering water benefits delivered with water quality wetland improvements.

Wulf works in concert with farmers, landowners, and other stakeholders in Iowa to identify opportunities for the development and installation of water quality wetlands. His work has contributed to reductions in nitrate loss to waterways and helps support achievement of the Iowa Nutrient Reduction Strategy goals.

In the webinar, “Water Quality Wetlands in Iowa,” Wulf will discuss the function of different water quality wetland types and how each contributes to nitrate reductions while also providing excellent wildlife habitat. He will share examples of built projects as well as offer an update on sites under development. Wulf will also review the historical wetlands focus of IDALS and discuss ongoing expansion of programs and the efforts to site projects within alternative landscapes.

“Wetlands have something to offer just about anyone, whether you are an avid birder or interested in water quality and conservation, IDALS’s efforts to promote wetland growth in Iowa delivers benefits to all Iowans,” said Wulf. “Participants in this webinar should gain a better understanding of the importance of water quality wetlands to Iowa’s Nutrient Reduction Strategy and how these crucial systems impact water quality.”
