Eastern Panhandle Conservation District local work group meeting July 18
The Eastern Panhandle Conservation District in cooperation with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) will convene a local work group meeting to provide guidance and discuss the Focused Conservation Approach, a new NRCS conservation delivery system.
The local work group includes representatives from cooperating federal, state and local agencies, conservation organizations and the public to provide localized information on natural resource priorities in the Eastern Panhandle Conservation District. The Eastern Panhandle Conservation District covers Berkeley, Morgan and Jefferson counties.
Tim Canfield, NRCS District Conservationist and his staff in the Martinsburg NRCS field office cover all counties in the Eastern Panhandle Conservation District.
Producers in the Eastern Panhandle have an opportunity to voice their concerns, ask questions and discuss possible projects to benefit the Eastern Panhandle Conservation District.
The local work groups are the foundation of the Focused Conservation Approach. The local work group will define conservation needs and help localize efforts to address specific resource concerns, Canfield said.
