USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Texas’ Orange County and the Lower Sabine-Neches Soil and Water Conservation District cordially invite the public to attend their FY20 Local Working Group (LWG) meeting from 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm on Tuesday, February 12, at J.B’s Barbeque Restaurant located at 5750 Old Highway 90 in Orange.

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 Orange 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 Orange County. Farmers, ranchers, conservationists, and others interested in obtaining Federal technical and financial assistance to improve private land in Orange County are invited to participate.
