Earth Day Podcast Features INREC Progress Measurement + Supported Research

The Spokesman Speaks Podcast
Environmental Technology Directory Shawn Richmond was interviewed by the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation for the Spokesman and for the Iowa Minute to discuss how the Iowa Nutrient Research and Education Council (INREC) is measuring progress toward the Iowa Nutrient Reduction Strategy.

The Earth Day episode of The Spokeman Speaks features an in depth interview with Richmond about the INREC progress measurement assessment- the most extensive survey of Iowa’s conservation progress to date. The podcast also talks with Iowa Department of Natural Resources Water Quality Resource Coordinator Adam Schneiders about a mapping project that was partially supported by INREC. The mapping utilized data from laser technology to quantify the conservation structures on Iowa’s landscape. Listen to The Spokesman Speaks: Measuring Iowa’s Water Quality Progress podcast today.

Richmond was also featured in a 60 second Iowa Minute video about how water and soil conservation is being measured in Iowa.
