The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and the Douglas Soil & Water Conservation District will be holding a meeting to gather input on local natural resource concerns in Douglas County.

Representatives from farm groups, fishing or wildlife clubs, lake associations, Ag business, etc. are encouraged to come.
The items gathered from this meeting will be presented to the Local Work Group who is responsible for setting priorities and ranking for conservation programs here in Douglas County. Programs such as the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP), Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program (WHIP)and the Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) and Wetland Reserve Program are available programs which require Resource Concerns to be identified.
