The Nature Conservancy’s Western Lake Erie Basin Agriculture Project relocated its office from Angola, Indiana, to Defiance, Ohio, on Oct. 17. Situated near the banks of the Maumee River at 210 Clinton Street in downtown Defiance, the new office location is ideal for working with partners to reduce water quality problems in Western Lake Erie and its tributaries.
“The new office location puts us right in the center of the Western Lake Erie Basin and makes it easier to work with our partners in Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan,” said Jessica D’Ambrosio, the Conservancy’s Western Lake Erie Basin Agriculture Project Director.
The team focuses its efforts on agriculture conservation and water management.
“We are all connected to the water quality problems in Lake Erie. It’s a community issue. We all play a role in supporting healthy watersheds,” said Lauren Lindemann, the Western Lake Erie Basin Agriculture Project Conservation Director. D’Ambrosio and Lindemann invite partners and the Defiance area community to stop by to learn more about the Conservancy and their work on Friday, Dec, 16, between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m., during an informal open house featuring local sweet treats.
