Roeslein Alternative Energy Begins Project to Protect Endangered Landscapes

A collection of business, agriculture, grazing, conservation and government officials have combined to launch a market-based approach to reduce soil erosion and protect Northwest Missouri landscapes.

The Grand River Conference pilot project will seek to improve a watershed in the region and establish a model that can be multiplied across the Mississippi River basin. The groups’ ultimate goal is to impact 30 million acres in 30 years and demonstrate benefits for the environment, wildlife and renewable energy.
