FARMINGTON — The USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service, in cooperation with the Franklin County Soil and Water Conservation District, is inviting all local residents with an interest in conservation practices on private agricultural lands and woodlands to participate in a Local Working Group meeting.

The event will be held at 10 a.m. Monday, Jan. 9, at the Farmington Municipal Building, 153 Farmington Falls Road.

The Local Working Group provides input for the USDA-NRCS to consider while making decisions based on natural resource concerns. Allocation of local funds for the implementation of conservation programs under the 2014 Farm Bill will come from these decisions.

Agricultural producers, private woodland owners, members of environmental/watershed organizations or land trusts, professionals in soil, water, plant, wetland or wildlife sciences and those familiar with agricultural and natural resource concerns in Franklin County are welcome to attend.

Refreshments will be served.

Reservations are required by Jan. 3.
