Conservation Innovation Grant Project

In August 2010, the MRWC and the Center for Invasive Species Management received a $1 million Conservation Innovation Grant from the USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service). The three-year project, titled ‚ÄúConservation Approaches to Invasive Plant Management in the Missouri River Watershed: From Invasive Species Prevention and Control, to Biomass Utilization/Bioenergy Generation‚ÄĚ will provide knowledge and benefits to producers and land managers throughout the Missouri River Watershed area and will serve as a pilot project for the western region and potentially the nation.
