USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Florida wants to remind landowners about the Local Working Group Meetings. At these meetings, farmers, ranchers, forest landowners, conservation partners and the public can discuss natural resource needs and priorities for their county. Florida State Conservationist Juan Hernandez says if you can’t make it to a meeting in person, they are available through Zoom.
NRCS and soil and water conservation districts host the meetings and provide input and recommendations to the NRCS state conservationist and the State Technical Committee to develop solutions using Farm Bill programs.
Meetings at various locations are being held across the state over the next few weeks. To see a complete list click here.
