Partner Producer Pledge
Interested in preserving water quality on your land? Take the Partner Producer Pledge! This voluntary program gives landowners and farmers the tools to better understand water quality on their land and then take steps to protect it into the future. Rural Action staff will conduct a free, confidential site visit and develop recommendations specifically for your property. We can then help connect you to grant and loan funding that can help finance any recommendations you decide to initiate!

Watershed Characterization Study 2021
In Spring and Summer 2021, Rural Action is leading an effort to conduct the first known watershed characterization study focusing on the Walhonding River basin, including tributaries like Killbuck Creek, the Mohican River, and the Kokosing River. The project will include chemical and field data collection at more than 120 sites around the region, with a goal of sampling at least once in every HUC12 tributary. Click below for a map of proposed monitoring sites, and contact Rural Action today if you’d like to learn more about the data collected or the final report!
