Agriculture is the backbone of rural America, and there is a significant amount of science and technology at work behind the scenes. In this episode of OUTdrive, I visit with Erin Ogle about her work in the agriculture and environmental fields and her position as the Watershed Project Coordinator for Taylor County, Iowa SWCD.
Erin is passionate about conservation and joined the Taylor County SWCD to implement the Taylor County Water Quality Initiative project in 2016. With a B.S. in Biological Systems Engineering from Kansas State University and experience in the field, she was well suited for the position. Her team partners with farmers and producers to prevent erosion, improve soil health and educate community members each step of the way. Through strategic analysis, planning and implementation, they’re improving land and water quality and fostering the growth of rural communities and businesses.
Tune in to this episode of OUTdrive as Erin shares what it’s like to partner with rural Americans to improve their operations and foster growth for years to come.
