Middlesex Conservation District

Local Working Group

2021 Local Working Group – August 23, 2021 via Zoom and by survey

The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), a division of USDA, is holding a local working group in conjunction with MCD on August 23, 2021 at 7:00 PM via Zoom.

Please email Susan Thomas, MCD District Administrator, at Susan.Thomas3@USDA.gov for the Zoom Link.

The purpose of the local working group is to get input from partners and landowners (farmers, land trusts, municipalities, homeowners) in the county on resource concerns so NRCS programs and services can be targeted to meet local needs.  Feedback is  collected, reviewed and incorporated in the development of FY 2022 programs so local priorities and concerns are taken into account when ranking and weighting applications for federal assistance.

We hope you will be able to join us on August 23rd to discuss conservation priorities in the District.

Whether or not you can attend on the 23rd, please take a few minutes to fill out the survey and return it to Susan.Thomas3@USDA.Gov or mail it to MCD attention Susan Thomas by the revised deadline of August 31, 2021.  Partial surveys will be accepted and counted, should you not have knowledge of a particular subject area.  All opinions will be included, however, please include your county of residence, location of land holdings, or property in your care and custody, in answer to Question 1.

The survey is here:

Thank you for your time and attention to crafting the programs which  fund vital conservation work in Middlesex County.
