The series was especially developed for conservation partners interested in pursuing NFWF’s Innovative Nutrient and Sediment Reduction (INSR) Grants Program or other grants programs supporting collaborative development and growth, to provide insights on what makes for a competitive, INSR-ready collaborative restoration proposal based on both research and practice.
Each session and accompanying resources are now available online at the links provided below:
- Regional Collaborative Partnerships – Raising the Bar for Improving Bay Water Quality
- Interstate Regional Collaboratives: Grazing and Wetlands
- Basin Watershed Collaboratives: Riparian Buffers and Herding Cats
- Urban Collaboratives: Targeting Cities and Interesting Infrastructures
- Agricultural and Rural Collaboratives: The Shenandoah Valley -Resources, Relationship & Effective Process
Chesapeake Bay partners who are interested in developing a collaborative approach, particularly in context with a future NFWF INSR proposal, are strongly encouraged to review the session titled (1) “Regional Collaborative Partnerships – Raising the Bar for Improving Bay Water Quality” and also consider one of the sessions that explores collaborative models within the a specific context or landscape, e.g. (2) interstate-, (3) basin-, (4) urban-, or (5) agricultural and rural- based regional-scale collaboratives.
