Laurel Badura, wildlife biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program, found incentive funding allowing ag producer Bart Jacobson to renovate and conserve a rainwater basin on grassland that's grazed by cattle and sheep under aggressive management.

Jacobson is pleased with the results and credits Badura with arranging funding and managing the details of the partnerships, which drove the project forward. This episode of Playa Country is part two of a three-part series on Rainwater Basins. It originally aired on HPPR Tuesday, May 21, 2013
