The Sussex Conservation District (SCD) will hold a hybrid local work group (LWG) meeting on Friday, March 10, 2023, at 9 a.m. at the Vanderwende-Evans Conservation Center in Georgetown. This event is free and open to the public, limited in-person seating is available[SK1] [AD-NGD2] and preregistration is required.
The LWG allows stakeholders an opportunity to discuss current USDA Farm Bill programs, administered by the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), conservation needs and resource concerns in Sussex County. The outcomes of the LWG will be included in the May 2023 State Technical Committee (STC) meeting. The STC serves in an advisory capacity to NRCS on the implementation of the natural resource conservation provisions of the Farm Bill legislation.
David Baird, SCD district coordinator, says the LWG should be diverse and focused on agricultural interests and natural resource issues existing in the community.
Persons with disabilities who require accommodations to attend or participate should contact SCD one week prior to the event date.
