The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Texas and the Mason County Soil and Water Conservation District cordially invite the public to attend their 2014 Local Working Group (LWG) meeting Thursday August 7th, 2014 at 1:30 pm at the St Paul Lutheran Church Fellowship Hall.

The purpose of this annual LWG meeting is to set local conservation priorities and bring conservation stakeholders together to discuss conservation topics and issues relevant to helping Mason County farmers and ranchers better conserve on-farm natural resources.

The agenda of the meeting is to update attendees on recent conservation efforts and to collect public input to help guide future conservation activities. Through regular identification of conservation opportunities, effective Farm Bill investment can continue to benefit Mason County. Farmers, ranchers, conservationists, and others interested in obtaining Federal technical and financial assistance to improve private land in MasonCounty are invited to participate.
