Celebrating Earth Day by Recognizing Agriculture’s Contribution to Improving Water Quality

For Earth Day we took a moment to celebrate agricultural producers as key partners in improving water quality.
The guest for this segment was Rebecca Perrin, Agriculture Adviser for EPA Region 8. Rebecca provides a brief history of Earth Day and the US Environmental Protection Agency connection. She also talks about EPA’s efforts to reduce nutrient losses from agricultural lands and improve water quality through both industry engagement and the Clean Water Act. Rebecca provides examples of collaborations occurring both nationally and in Montana with agricultural producers.
