By Staff | Dec 13, 2016

AMES – Prairie Rivers of Iowa recently named Kayla Hasper as its new watershed coordinator.

Hasper is a 2016 graduate of Iowa State University with degrees in animal ecology and environmental tudies.

She brings a unique perspective to Prairie Rivers as she initially started as an intern for the organization in September 2013 and has worked for various programs, including the Lincoln Highway Heritage Byway and Natural Resources Education.

She most recently served as Prairie Rivers’ Watershed Educator facilitating outreach efforts in the watershed community.

In her new position, Hasper will work with farmers, landowners, and community members on soil health and water quality issues.

She will develop field days and other workshops where people can learn about conservation practices and available tools to assist in planning and water quality monitoring.

Hasper will also continue Prairie Rivers’ work with local Soil and Water Conservation Districts and local businesses to provide conservation services and cost-share opportunities for farmers to implement conservation practices on their land.
