Albemarle Soil and Water Local Workgroup Meeting

Resting in the hands of our local community members is the future of our valuable natural resources and the decisions that are made to conserve, enhance and sustain the integrity of soil, water and air quality throughout North Carolina. Conservation of our resources can not be achieved by one group, government agency or the individual – it takes cooperative conservation.

Cooperative conservation starts first with the active involvement of the individual community member who helps to identify the resource needs of the community. Community involvement helps local Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCD) and the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) assess and prioritize resource concerns on a community level. Local natural resource priorities help direct technical and financial assistance decisions that NRCS and SWCD make throughout the year.

Locally Led Workgroup Meeting for the Albemarle District (which includes Camden, Chawan, Currituck, Perquimans and Pasquotank counties) will be held on August 9 at 6:30 PM at Perquimans County Ag. Extension Office. The public is encouraged to participate.
