Current Local Work Group Meeting Schedule

Fiscal Year 2021 Local Work Group Schedule

Local Work Group Meetings are a valuable part of the NRCS planning process, providing an opportunity for local land managers to be part of a collaborative effort to improve natural resources within their county. 

Participants help:

• identify where the best investments can be made to address natural resource problems,

• share the work that has already been done in the county, and

• share their vision for what the county will look like when these natural resource concerns have been addressed.

 

Based on feedback from those meetings, NRCS updates the county Long Range Plan and develops new Conservation Implementation Strategies to address identified resource concerns.

You may contact us anytime to express concerns or comments about conservation needs in the county, and we encourage you to attend the next Local Work Group meeting in your county.
