NRCS Summer Meeting

Wigwam Resort in Litchfield Park

August 11, 12, and 13

 

Who deserves some recognition in your district?

This year’s Summer Meeting is shaping up to be an exciting and informative event.  As you know the theme for our meeting this year, in conjunction with the International Year of the Soil is Soil Health.  Of course, as the leading conservation organization in the state, getting policy makers to understand the relationship between soil health and the health of our nation through our farmers and ranchers is of upmost importance. If your district will contact your legislator and invite him or her to attend part of our meeting and especially our farm tour on the 12th, and let us know if they are coming, we can make an impression on them that will last through the upcoming legislative session.
Also, remember Wednesday evening will be our annual awards presentations. If your district has someone you think should receive one of our awards, please fill out the nomination, and return it to me no later than July 31st. That will give us time to get the awards made. Please take time right now and contact your supervisors and make those nominations.

See you at the Summer Meeting!
Bill
