Local Work Group (LWG) meetings will be occurring across the state, from now until the end of July. These meetings will be held on the NRCS work unit basis.
Local Work Group meetings will consist of farmers, landowners, conservation partners, and other members of the community who has an interest in and have knowledge of the natural resource needs for the area. The discussion and recommendations from the participants in the meeting will assist NRCS with program direction of the Environmental Quality Incentives Program and resource concerns for other USDA programs for Fiscal Year 2021 and beyond.
