The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service in Clay County and the Little Wichita Soil and Water Conservation District invite the public to attend the 2014 Local Working Group meeting Sept. 3 from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.
The purpose of the annual LWG meeting is to set local conservation priorities and bring conservation stakeholders together to discuss conservation topics and issues relevant to helping Clay County farmers and ranchers better conserve on-farm natural resources.
The agenda of the meeting is to update attendees on recent conservation efforts and to collect public input to help guide future conservation activities. Through regular identification of conservation opportunities, effective Farm Bill investment can continue to benefit Clay County. Farmers, ranchers, conservationists and others interested in obtaining federal technical and financial assistance to improve private land in Clay County are invited to participate.
