No one knows more about a community's natural resource problems then the people who live and work there. That's why it's so important to give local landowners and partners a voice in how best to prioritize and address these issues through the Local Working Group (LWG). 


RSVP for the meeting through the following link:

Producers and partners from Somerset and Union Counties are invited to help decide where to direct technical and financial resources for conservation programs and efforts locally and across the state.
