The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), the Oklahoma Tribal Conservation Advisory Council (OTCAC) and Farm Service Agency (FSA) will partner together for a free conservation workshop on Wednesday, April 26, 2023.
Join the agencies to discuss free technical assistance and conservation funding opportunities. You will also learn how producers can gather conservation data from Tribal Soil Climate Analysis Network (Tribal SCAN) to assist with their conservation decisions regarding livestock and crops, how to extract data on soil moisture and climate for livestock and crops, and how the removal of eastern red cedar benefits producers, monarch butterflies and pollinators.
Information regarding departing site visits on native grass planting, grade stabilization structure, and waterway construction will be given.
Partners who will provide USDA program updates include NRCS, FSA, and the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS). Conservation district partners from Alfalfa, Garfield, and Grant Counties will be available to provide updates regarding their state cost share programs.
When: Wednesday, April 26, 2023, from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Lunch will be provided.
