County Conservation partners to host annual local work group meeting


Natural Resources Conservation Service

The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NCRS) and the Caldwell-Travis Soil and Water Conservation District are seeking input from the public on hos to best serve local citizens through Farm Bill conservation programs and technical assistance. The public is invited to attend their Fiscal Year 2025 Local Working Group (LWG) meeting o Feb. 1 from 10 a.m. to noon.

This meeting is an opportunity to bring farmers, ranchers, conservationists, and others together to discuss natural resource needs and set local conservation priorities. The information gathered at these listening sessions helps provide NRCS and the Districts the necessary technical and financial support to help land managers make on-the ground management decisions that produce positive ecological outcomes at the local and state level. This input helps determine collaborative efforts for natural resource priorities and identifies opportunities to address them with conservation practices that improve soils, watershed health, biodiversity and farmers’ livelihoods.

Conservation stakeholders and others interested in obtaining Federal technical and financial assistance to improve private land in Caldwell County are encouraged to participate in this meeting.
