The Rock Creek Watershed Management Project would like to announce a cost-share program for farmers and landowners in the Rock Creek Watershed in Winston and Cullman counties. This project will help producers address concerns on their farms that will reduce the runoff and decrease the amount of pathogens that reach local streams and creeks through best management practices (BMPs).
Practices to be funded include tree planting, grass planting, watering troughs, weed management, feeding areas, cross fencing, riparian fencing, stream crossings, dry stacks and dead bird disposal systems. Applications will be funded on a first-come basis. Signups for the project will be from Sept. 5-16. Applications will be available at the Cullman, Winston and Hamilton USDA offices.
For more information, contact Wade Hill at 205-921-3103, extension 3, or Mike Henshaw at 205-489-5376.
