Covid-19 might have stalled people’s plans for 2020, but it hasn’t stopped landowners from improving water quality within the Indian – Kentuck Creek. Through the undertaking of several local individuals, organizations, and the Indiana Dept. of Environmental Management, the Indian-Kentuck Watershed project works with landowners to provide cost-share funding to implement best management practices that improve water quality in the stream.

Topics for discussion included:
