County Conservation Partners Host Local Work Group Meeting
LIBERTY, May 8, 2015 - The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Texas’ Liberty County and the Lower Trinity Soil and Water Conservation District cordially invite the public to attend their FY16 Local Working Group (LWG) meeting May 20, 2015, from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.
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 Liberty 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 Liberty County. Farmers, ranchers, conservationists, and others interested in obtaining Federal technical and financial assistance to improve private land in Liberty County are invited to participate.
