The Potomac Valley Conservation District, in cooperation with USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service, will hold a local work group meeting to discuss conservation programs for 2023-2024 and provide guidance for the Environmental Quality Incentives Program. The meeting will be held at 10 a.m. April 13 at the Farm Credit Building located at 550 South Main Street in Moorefield.
The local work group includes representatives from cooperating federal, state, and local conservation organizations and is open to all farmers, agricultural producers, and forest owners/managers. If a person has thought about applying for one of the programs NRCS has to offer or have questions about what might be available, this meeting is a great opportunity to learn more. As part of NRCS’s locally led process of administering programs, public comments will be sought from attendees on how to best prioritize USDA dollars for one’s local area.
The Potomac Valley Conservation District covers Grant, Hardy, Pendleton, Mineral, and Hampshire counties. Sarah Taylor-Goldizen, NRCS district conservationist, and her staff work from the NRCS field offices in Petersburg, Moorefield and Franklin.
