Please join us on Tuesday, December 19th at noon for a NFWF Project Spotlight, “Subsurface Application of Manures in the Chesapeake Bay Basin.”


Join Kristen Hughes Evans of Sustainable Chesapeake and a team of soil scientists, agronomists, and engineers who will share lessons learned in a recently completed an grant project aimed at advancing the deployment of both liquid and solid manure injection technologies in high density animal production regions of the Chesapeake Bay watershed.


This project was made possible through significant financial support from the Natural Resources Conservation Service Conservation Innovation Grants (CIG) Program and the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Chesapeake Bay Program’s  Innovative Nutrient and Sediment Reduction Grants Program.


The presentation will be held as a webinar:


Hope to see you there!


The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation’s Project Spotlight series is an effort to share lessons learned, challenges and opportunities in implementation through discussions with grantees who have recently completed a grant project. Grantees with expertise in a common topic join together to reflect on their experiences and answer audience questions.


This year we held a series of five Spotlights focusing on the unique challenges of regional collaborations.

These recordings of past Project Spotlights can be found on our website, under “Our Grantees in the News”:


          Financing Strategies for Regional Initiatives

          Regional Scale Delivery Models for Agriculture

          Nonprofit Partners in Regional Collaborations

          Stormwater-Focused Collaborations Among Local Governments

          Diverse Partnerships in Regional Collaborations





The US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Chesapeake Bay Program (CBP) has a long-standing partnership, through a cooperative agreement, with the National Fish and Wildlife (NFWF) to provide direct financial support to accomplish both:

–              The Small Watershed Grant (SWG) program that promotes community-based efforts to develop conservation strategies to protect and restore the diverse natural resources of the Chesapeake Bay.

–              The Innovative Nutrient and Sediment Reduction (INSR) grant program that support efforts with the Chesapeake Bay watershed to accelerate nutrient and sediment reductions with innovative, sustainable, and cost-effective approaches.
