Locally led conservation meeting set in Rayville
A locally led conservation meeting will be held in Richland Parish to Identify resource concerns for Boeuf River Soil and Water Conservation District will be held at 9 a.m. Feb. 24 at the Rayville Civic Center.
Community involvement is significantly important to the locally led conservation process and all partners involved in conservation. At the locally led conservation meeting citizens will be able to voice concerns, provide comments and help identify conservation issues.
Resting in the hands of local community members is the future of valuable natural resources and the decisions that are made to conserve, enhance and sustain the integrity of soil, water and air quality in throughout Louisiana.
Conservation of resources can not be achieved by one group, government agency or the individual – it takes cooperative conservation.
Cooperative conservation starts first with active involvement of the individual community member who helps identify the resource needs of the community. Community involvement helps local Soil and Water Conservation Districts and the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service assess and prioritize resource concerns on a community level. Local natural resource priorities help district technical and financial assistance decisions that NRCS and SWCD make throughout the year.
Locally led conservation efforts are successful with the help from our residents. PLease, become involved in locally led conservation.
