Land-Water Connections and the Ecological Impacts of Water Pollution

From local streams and far away seas to bacteria and whales, water supports life across many scales. Join researchers and practitioners for a discussion about the ways that land-water interactions, including inputs from agriculture, are influencing plants and animals on land, in lakes, streams, and oceans. And explore how local actions help biodiversity far downstream.
