April 2021 Virtual Forum

The City of Dyersville, home of Field of Dreams movie site, is leading efforts to improve the water quality of its streams while providing economic development opportunities. The vision plan unites public, rural and downtown private partners with the mantra “If you clean the water, they will come”! The confluence of funding for water quality practices, brownfield redevelopment, and stream restoration, provides the framework needed to throw the first pitch by addressing water quality concerns and improve river access. Homerun benefit includes a welcoming aesthetic that provides wild places to recreate, enjoy a brew, and/or unplug and connect with nature!

Learn about this great project with the virtual forum on April 20th, from 12:00pm-1:00pm. To register, go to https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_-DQXkR4eRKuZnTb4P-5JJg
