Meigs SWCD announces Local Workgroup meeting

POMEROY, Ohio – The Meigs Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) and the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) will conduct a Local Workgroup (LWG) meeting on Monday, April 24, 2017 at 9 a.m. to identify resource concerns, discuss conservation priorities, and develop potential solutions. The meeting will take place at 113 East Memorial Drive, Suite D Pomeroy.

While Local Work Group membership is limited to federal, state, county, tribal, or local government representatives who are familiar with agriculture and natural resources interests, the meeting is open to the general public, who is invited to participate and provide input on local conservation issues and resource challenges. LWGs support locally led conservation efforts by coordinating USDA programs with other conservation programs in an effort to provide an integrated solution to addressing natural resource concerns.
