County conservation partners organize annual local working group meeting in virtual format
The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and the Soil and Water Conservation District of Bowie county seek public opinions on how to better serve local citizens through the agricultural bill's conservation and technical assistance programs. To reduce the spread of COVID, the USDA NRCS and Districts have organized their annual local working group meeting in virtual format for Monday April 5, 2021 at 11:00 am.
This meeting is an opportunity to bring together farmers, ranchers, conservationists and so on to discuss natural resources and set local conservation priorities. The information collected in these opinion-sharing sessions helps provide NRCS and Districts with the technical and financial support needed to help land managers make field management decisions that produce positive ecological outcomes at the local and state levels. This information helps determine what collaborative efforts are needed to address natural resource priorities and identifies opportunities to address them with soil-enhancing conservation practices, watershed health, biodiversity, and farmers' livelihoods
Conservation stakeholders and others interested in obtaining federal technical and financial assistance to improve the private lands of Bowie County are encouraged to participate in this meeting.
