This fact sheet discusses biodiversity; its importance and its relationship to riparian areas.
This paper provides an ecological perspective on the interrelationship between livestock grazing and riparian areas through a review of topical literature.
The key to the success of the Cows and Fish program is a clearly defined and consistently applied approach or process. Our success is based on creating partnerships with producers and their communities to effectively address riparian land use issues.
This fact sheet discusses riparian areas: their importance to both producers and crops, health management and recommendations for cropping practices.
This fact sheet discusses wetlands, their influence on water quality, biological diversity and environmental stablity.
This fact sheet discusses lakes and wetlands: stability factors, importance of biodiversity, water quality, storage and usage.
Streams are valuable sources of drinking water in the prairie environment. Water is also habitat or "home" for fish and other aquatic organisms.
This fact sheet identifies four basic steps to follow when designing a riparian buffer.
The loss of native riparian vegetation can result in a loss of habitat for many species of animals, both on land and in the stream itself.
