Montana Focused Conservation:
What Does That Mean For Richland County?
April 3, 2019 | View PDF
The Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) is changing the way they allocate funding for conservation work in the state of Montana and in Richland County. To determine the natural resource concerns in Richland County we need your help identifying the top resource concerns.
Local Working Group Meeting will be held on April 11 at 3:30 p.m. in the meeting room at MSU Extension Office. Montana Focused Conservation (MFC), County Long range Plans (LRP) and Targeted Implementation Plans (TIP) will determine how and where EQIP funding is allocated in the future.
Richland County agricultural landowners, local, state and federal agency personnel will set the priorities of natural resource concerns. Working together we will be able to strategically address our resource concerns by clearly defining our resources concerns, developing a plan to address the concern, projecting a timeline and the funding needs to achieve the goal of Montana Focused Conservation.
If you have natural resource concerns you feel need to be addressed, please join us. Local Working Group Meeting Thursday, April 11 at 3:30 p.m. in the meeting room of the MSU Extension building at 1499 North Central Avenue. Sidney, MT. Questions call the Richland County Conservation District 406-403-2103x3001.
