County conservation partners to host local work group meeting

The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service in Texas’ Jack County and the Jack Soil and Water Conservation District cordially invite the public to attend their FY17 Local Working Group meeting from noon to 2 p.m. August 10 at the Jack County Fair Barn, 1072 State Hwy. 59, Jacksboro.

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

The meeting agenda serves 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 investments can continue to benefit Jack County. Farmers, ranchers, conservationists, and others interested in obtaining Federal technical and financial assistance to improve private land in Jack County are invited to participate.

To join in the lunch but RSVP by contacting Matt Gregory, district conservationist, at 940-567-5641. For more information, visit the Texas NRCS Web site at http://www.tx.nrcs.usda.gov/.
