High Point SWCD looks for public input

March 24, 2022 – The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and the High Point Soil and Water Conservation District is seeking input from the public on how to best serve local citizens through Farm Bill conservation programs and technical assistance. The public is invited to attend their Fiscal Year 2023 Local Working Group (LWG) meeting April 11, 2022, from 6 pm to 7 pm CDST.

This meeting is an opportunity to bring farmers, ranchers, conservationists, and others together to discuss natural resource needs and set local conservation priorities. The information gathered at these listening sessions helps provide NRCS and the Districts the necessary technical and financial support to help land managers make on-the ground management decisions that produce positive ecological outcomes at the local and state level. This input helps determine collaborative efforts for natural resource priorities and identifies opportunities to address them with conservation practices that improve soils, watershed health, biodiversity, farmers and rancher’s livelihoods.

Conservation stakeholders and others interested in obtaining Federal technical and financial assistance to improve private land in Culberson County are encouraged to participate in this meeting.

For more information, please contact Gary Fuentes, District Conservationist at 432-283-2277 Ext. 3 or via email at [email protected] A request for accommodations for persons with disabilities should be made at least 48 hours before the meeting.
