Conservation STOCK

From Enterprise Staff

The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and the Polk-San Jacinto County Soil and Water Conservation Districts are seeking input from the public on how to best serve local citizens through farm bill conservation programs and technical assistance. The public is invited to attend their fiscal year 2024 Local Working Group meeting at 10 a.m. March 7 at Polk County Farm Bureau located at 890 U.S. 59 Loop North in Livingston.

This meeting is an opportunity to bring farmers, ranchers, conservationists and others together to discuss natural resource needs and set local conservation priorities. The information gathered at these listening sessions helps provide NRCS and the districts the necessary technical and financial support to help land managers make on-the-ground management decisions that produce positive ecological outcomes at the local and state level. This input helps determine collaborative efforts for natural resource priorities and identifies opportunities to address them with conservation practices that improve soils, watershed health, biodiversity and farmers’ livelihoods.

Conservation stakeholders and others interested in obtaining federal technical and financial assistance to improve private land in Polk and San Jacinto counties are encouraged to participate in this meeting.

For more information, contact Mozelle Carter, district conservationist, at 936-327-8911 x3 or via email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
