This meeting, hosted by the USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and the Richland and Calhoun Soil and Water Conservation Districts, will gather input to help set priorities for Fiscal Year 2019 USDA conservation programs under the 2014 Farm Bill for Richland and Calhoun Counties. Agricultural producers, owners/operators of nonindustrial private forest land, professionals representing agricultural and natural resource interests, and local community members who are familiar with agriculture and natural resource issues are invited to attend.
During the meeting, local acting District Conservationist Antron Williams will present information about the current conditions of Richland and Calhoun Counties’ natural resources and dominant land uses. Participants will help identify natural resource concerns and goals, examine new conservation opportunities, and prioritize areas where conservation efforts are most needed. RSVP is not required; contact Antron Williams at (803) 874-3337 x 3 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Local work groups were established to provide recommendations to NRCS on local natural resource priorities and criteria for conservation activities and programs. NRCS works with landowners through conservation planning and assistance designed to benefit the soil, water, air, plants, and animals that result in productive lands and healthy ecosystems. USDA is an equal opportunity provider, employer, and lender.
Conservation Districts are political subdivisions of state government under the local direction of five-member Boards of Commissioners. In South Carolina, Conservation District boundaries conform to County boundaries. The Richland Soil and Water Conservation District promotes the wise use of natural resources for the benefit of the citizens of Richland County.
