Get Involved

There are three ways you can participate in the Mississippi River Basin Ag & Water Desk project.

The mission of the Mississippi River Basin Ag & Water Desk is to enhance the quantity, quality, and impact of journalism on agriculture, water, and related issues throughout the basin. The Desk and the news outlets hosting our journalists are offering free, high-quality, fact-checked regional content on agriculture and water issues throughout the Mississippi River basin to news outlets for publication.
