This week’s On the Radio segment covers a portion of the Master River Steward Program’s ongoing work with rivers and communities. Listen to the audio below, or continue reading for the transcript.
This is the Iowa Environmental Focus.
Participants of the eight week program will paddle the Cedar River learning about navigation, restoration of aquatic habitats, and water quality. They will also gain a better understanding of floodplain policies, river protection, and restoration efforts.
The goal of the program is to engage and involve more people in efforts to improve recreational opportunities and water quality in Iowa rivers.
