Event has passed

SEARSMONT — On Wednesday, Dec. 4, from 1 - 3 p.m., Knox-Lincoln and Waldo County Soil & Water Conservation Districts (SWCDs), in cooperation with the Belfast Field Office of the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), will host a meeting of the Local Working Group for Knox and Waldo counties at the Searsmont Town Office.

Taking into account local resource concerns, the Local Working Group will make recommendations to NRCS on how to spend local funds provided by the USDA Farm Bill Environmental Quality Incentive Program (EQUIP) for conservation practices on private lands in FY 2021.

If you are an agricultural producer; forester, logger or private woodland owner; member of an environmental or watershed organization or land trust; knowledgeable in soil, water, plant, wetland or wildlife sciences; and/or are familiar with agricultural and natural resource concerns in Knox or Waldo counties, SWCD invites you to attend this meeting to help 1.) identify and prioritize conservation concerns in the districts; and 2.) recommend how local funds for USDA conservation programs will be distributed by NRCS to alleviate problems.
