The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Culberson County and the High Point Soil and Water Conservation District #230 cordially invite the public to attend their Fiscal Year 2017 Local Working Group (LWG) meeting August 19, 2016 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
The purpose of this annual LWG meeting is to bring together conservation stakeholders to discuss conservation topics and issues, and to set local conservation priorities to help farmers, ranchers and private landowners conserve and manage the natural resources.
The meeting also updates attendees on recent conservation efforts and allows for an opportunity to collect public input to help guide future conservation activities. Through regular identification of conservation opportunities, effective Farm Bill investments can continue to benefit Culberson County. Farmers, ranchers, conservationists, and others interested in obtaining Federal technical and financial assistance to improve private lands are invited to participate.
