Michael Reuter

Michael Reuter , The Nature Conservancy’s Director of Freshwater for North America, has focused his career on the management of large freshwater systems for both people and nature. He has been especially interested in ways to improve decision-making in these complex and economically important systems by involving the people and companies who depend on them for drinking water, production of food and fiber and energy, flood management, transportation, and recreation. Reuter's Midwest background has also shaped his interests and expertise in the area of sustainable agriculture, especially with regard to large commodity crops such as corn, soy, wheat and cotton.
