GENERAL EVENT NOTICE: Due to recent concern over the spread of the corona virus, suggests confirming with the actual organizers that this event is still proceeding as planned.

Event Details:
Farms in the Maumee River Watershed which feeds the Western Lake Erie Basin will be the first in Ohio to gain certification as environmentally sustainable, a project funded by the governor's H2Ohio program.
Mike Libben will explain the state's plans to spend $30.3 million this year at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 16, in a talk at Packo's at the Park in downtown Toledo. Libben, the district program administrator for Ottawa Soil and Water Conservation District, will speak and answer questions at the monthly meeting of Lake Erie Waterkeeper.

Mr. Libben, who also farms 500 acres of corn, soybeans, and wheat, says the process, which teaches farms to prevent or minimize pollution risks, is modeled after a Michigan program that has voluntarily enrolled 5,400 farms of all sizes and commodities.
