County Conservation Partners Host Local Work Group Meeting

January 21, 2020 - The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Texas’ Shelby County and the Shelby Soil and Water Conservation District cordially invite the public to attend their FY21 Local Working Group (LWG) meeting January 22, 2020, at 10am at 158 Cass-Caid Dr., Center, Texas 75935.

The purpose of this annual LWG meeting is to set local conservation priorities and bring conservation stakeholders together to discuss conservation topics and issues relevant to helping Shelby County 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 Shelby County. Farmers, ranchers, conservationists, and others interested in obtaining Federal technical and financial assistance to improve private land in Shelby County are invited to participate.
