The Sussex Conservation District (SCD) will hold a virtual local work group (LWG) meeting on Wednesday, April 21 at 9 a.m. This event is free and open to the public, preregistration is required.

The LWG allows stakeholders an opportunity to discuss current USDA Farm Bill programs, administered by the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), conservation needs and resource concerns in Sussex County. The outcomes of the LWG will be included in the July 2021 State Technical Committee (STC) meeting. The STC serves in an advisory capacity to the NRCS on the implementation of the natural resource conservation provisions of the Farm Bill legislation.

According to David Baird, district coordinator at SCD, the LWG should be diverse and focused on agricultural interests and natural resource issues existing in the community.

Persons with disabilities who require accommodations to attend or participate should contact SCD one week prior to the event date.
