The meeting is open to the public.
All agricultural landowners and producers, owners/operators of nonindustrial private forest land, professionals representing agricultural and natural resource interests, and individuals representing a variety of disciplines in the soil, water, wetland, plant, forestry, and wildlife sciences who are familiar with agricultural and natural resource issues in the local community are encouraged to attend.
The meeting will be conducted as an open discussion among attendees. Discussion will focus on identifying local natural resource concerns that can be treated using conservation programs and activities. Participating in this meeting does not obligate attendees to participate in programs nor does it qualify them for programs.
Input will help shape the funding, technical assistance and conservation work that will be available in Goliad County for the upcoming year. The benefits of conservation funding, technical assistance and conservation practices implemented on agricultural land in your county reach well beyond the farm or ranch gate to all Texans. Benefits include soil and plant health, air and water quality, and livestock and wildlife production.
Input received will allow the local work group to make recommendations on resource concerns to be addressed for eligible practices and ranking for county based funding. Recommendations provided by the meeting will be reviewed by the State Technical Advisory Committee to help implement the Environmental Quality Incentives Program, and other conservation programs offered by NRCS.
