Willacy County Conservation partners host local work group

The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service ( NRCS) in Texas’ Willacy County and the Willacy Soil and Water Conservation District cordially invites the public to attend their FY18 Local Working Group (LWG) meeting August 17, 2017, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

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 Willacy County farmers and ranchers better conserve on-farm natural resources.

The meeting agenda serves to update attendees on recent conservation efforts and to col- lect public input to help guide future conservation activities. Through regular identification of conservation opportunities, effective Farm Bill investments can continue to benefit Willacy County. Farmers, ranchers, conservationists, and others interested in obtaining Federal technical and financial assistance to improve private land in Willacy County are invited to participate.

For more information, please contact Enrique Gonzalez Jr., district conservationist, at 956- 689- 2542 Ext-3. For more information, visit the Texas NRCS Web site at http:// www. tx. nrcs.usda.gov/.
