The Boone River Watershed stretches just north of Wesley down to Stratford and consists of about 581,000 acres. Of those acres, agriculture makes up a majority of that landscape. The Boone River Watershed was organized to assist in implementation of conservation practices to reduce nutrients (primarily nitrogen and phosphorus) in water runoff. Water Quality is important to everyone. The Boone River Watershed Nutrient Management Initiative works with landowners and land operators to demonstrate and assist in implementing ways to improve water quality.
