WAVERLY, Iowa (AP) Iowa officials are highlighting the benefits of planting trees, shrubs and native grasses for water quality and wildlife habitat in the state.

The forestry bureau of the state Department of Natural Resources and Trees Forever are hosting a series of public meetings about the importance of natural buffers along waterways.

Officials say such buffers decrease soil erosion, prevent sediment and pollutants from entering streams, and lessen stream bank erosion.

The groups will highlight the Upper Cedar Watershed Outreach Project, a three-year federally funded program aimed at addressing these issues.

The meetings will be held Jan. 21 in Waverly, Feb. 11 in Charles City, and March 18 in Osage.
