HASKELL—The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Jones, Haskell and Knox County along with California Creek, Haskell and Wichita-Brazos Soil and Water Conservation Districts will host their FY21 Local Working Group (LWG) meeting from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 31 here at the Haskell Civic Center.
Farmers, ranchers, conservationists, and others interested in obtaining Federal technical and financial assistance to improve private land in Jones, Haskell and Knox County are invited to participate.
The purpose of the meeting is to set local conservation priorities and bring conservation stakeholders together to discuss conservation topics and issues relevant to helping Jones, Haskell and Knox Counties farmers and ranchers better conserve on-farm natural resources.
The agenda of the meeting is to update attendees on recent conservation efforts and to collect public input to help guide future conservation activities. Through regular identification of conservation opportunities, effective Farm Bill investment can continue to benefit all three counties.
