Now we can talk about it: Manure Matters!

In early May the Whatcom Conservation District announced a new public information campaign that should be of great interest to our watershed – ‘Manure Matters‘. You can read about it on their website here, and in a Lynden Tribune article here.
“The campaign will provide information on the steps farmers must take to protect water quality in local streams, rivers and bays and help generate a public understanding of how and why farmers recycle manure as an organic crop nutrient and soil amendment.”

“The educational, and humorous ads will run in local newspapers, websites, radio, and social media throughout the spring and summer. This campaign is funded by a Washington State Department of Agriculture grant created by fines issued for improper manure management: Whatcom CD is recycling those funds back to the community.”
“The “Manure Matters” campaign will include a series of ads with different themes representing the variety of manure producers and users in Whatcom County. Whatcom CD hopes to remove the stigma around manure, bring a positive view to a valuable resource, and increase its appropriate use that is protective of water quality.”
