This final report documents a study conducted by Yellow Wood to identify potential opportunities for sustainable natural resource-based economic development in the Dragon Run watershed. The Special Area Management Plan recognizes that one of the keys to conservation of the Dragon Run Watershed is the preservation of the traditional uses in the watershed, including agriculture, silviculture, hunting, fishing, etc. This study was conducted to promote these traditional uses. One of the recommendations highlighted by the study was to create a partnership to encourage the utilization of locally-grown soybeans in the biodiesel of municipal school bus fleets. This effort would provide a boost to the local soybean market while also promoting alternative fuels.
