For a river-focused funding initiative, there's no substitute for getting out in the field. We heard from farmers firsthand why they take part in habitat restoration, visited a prairie where an endangered plant thrives among cattle, and, ultimately, came away reflecting on how important relationships, adaptation and balance are in this work.
