Help direct conservation $$$ by taking a survey!

 

The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) directs farm bill funding through conservation programs throughout the nation. In Washington, local working groups help to prioritize resource concerns for their immediate area. These priorities are submitted to the state level for consideration, but can also be used to direct more localized funds as well as influence partner organization priorities.

 

The survey (see PDF download) is designed to be completed by landowners, property managers, and stakeholders that reside in Chelan, Douglas, and Okanogan counties. The intent of this survey is to help direct Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) priorities for funding and technical assistance in future years.

 

Responses to this survey will be kept anonymous and should be emailed to NRCS District Conservationist, Sarah Troutman, at sarah.troutman@usda.gov . Please feel free to share this survey with neighboring landowners.

 

Survey responses should be submitted by May 15, 2022.

Thank you for your participation and interest in natural resources conservation!
