    The Local Working Groups of Knox/Waldo and Lincoln/Kennebec counties make recommendations to NRCS on how to spend USDA Farm Bill funds for conservation practices on private lands in FY 2020.

    If you are an agricultural producer; forester, logger or private woodland owner; member of an environmental or watershed organization or land trust; knowledgeable in soil, water, plant, wetland or wildlife sciences; and/or are familiar with local agricultural and natural resource concerns, we invite you to attend this meeting to help 1) identify and prioritize conservation concerns in our region; and 2) recommend how local funds for USDA conservation programs will be distributed by NRCS to alleviate problems.
