We can protect our water and natural resources by:
Fencing off waterways
Maintaining Riparian Zones
Protecting ground water/well
Invasive species prevention
Protecting species at risk
Planting pollinator crops
Reducing soil erosion

This article examines the wildlife habitat available on agricultural land, the benefits that agriculture receives from wildlife, and mutually-beneficial farming practices.
This Water Quality Matters publication provides information about the role of riparian areas in maintaining good water quality and how the careful management of riparian areas can provide sustainable forage for producers and improved water quality for all.
