The Cows and Fish members and supporters (referred to as partners previously) recognize the importance of riparian areas and the issues that require resolution: to restore and maintain the health of these vital riparian areas or “green zones”. The task is large and will only be accomplished with cooperation and partnership. None of us is as smart as all of us are; by working together we can bring together the energy, resources, knowledge and wisdom to improve, understand and manage riparian areas.
“A cooperative effort of agencies, organizations, producers and community groups.”
The Cows and Fish Board of Directors and Members include local producer and community representatives as well as the following agencies and organizations:
