The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Texas’ Gaines County and the Gaines County Soil and Water Conservation District cordially invite the public to attend their 2013 Local Working Group (LWG) meeting Sept. 10, from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m.
The meeting will be held at the Gaines County USDA Farmer Service Center, located at 1301 S. Main.
The purpose of this annual LWG meeting is to set local conservation priorities and bring conservation stakeholders together to discuss conservation topics and issues relevant to helping Gaines 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 Gaines County. Farmers, ranchers, conservationists, and others interested in obtaining Federal technical and financial assistance to improve private land in Gaines County are invited to participate.
For more information, please contact Matt Brewer, district conservationist, at (432) 758-3722 Ext-101. For more information, visit the NRCS Web site at http://www.tx.nrcs.usda.gov/.
