Public Input Desired during Local Work Group Meeting
The Rice County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) in partnership with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) will be hosting a virtual Local Work Group (LWG) Meeting on Wednesday, April 8, 2020, at 11:00 AM. This meeting will be held online and is a great opportunity for farmers and landowners to voice their opinions of local natural resource priorities and criteria for USDA conservation activities and programs. NRCS & SWCD uses LWG input and recommendations to identify conservation planning needs, to prioritize resources concerns for the state’s programs,
and to develop ranking questions and procedures. To attend the meeting virtually, go to this website at the meeting time.
