Farmers Care for Wetlands

“Farmers know the land and water resources in their area better than anybody else.”

Nick and Dianne Somers own Plover River Farms in central Wisconsin. Their family has farmed this land for generations, growing potatoes and vegetables. At the same time, they’ve protected hundreds of acres of wetlands at the top of their watershed. Hear why protecting wetlands is important to Nick and Dianne and how, at the same time, their wetland helps their community.
