The event took place at the Auburn University, Forestry, Wildlife and Environment building conference hall. This committee serves in an advisory capacity on technical matters related to NRCS program delivery and was the first in-person State Technical Committee meeting since 2019.

A good crowd was on hand for the general morning session where those attending enjoyed the various presentations. Those speaking included Alabama NRCS State Conservationist Ben Malone, the ASTC for Technology Shannon Weaver, the State EQIP manager Frank Cochran, the Easement Program Manager Mark Howell and more. The morning session concluded with a Q&A session moderated by Mrs. Weaver. After lunch, attendees returned for sub-committee breakout sessions for Urban Ag and Longleaf Pine.


The State Technical Committee is composed of representatives from Federal and State natural resource agencies, American Indian Tribes, agricultural and environmental organizations, and agricultural producers.
