Locally Led Meeting and 319 Grant Stakeholder Meeting, September 25, 2017

The Clay County SWCD will be holding two annual meetings on Monday September 25th  at the Clay County Purdue Extension Office.

The first meeting is the Clay County Locally Led Meeting for FY18. The purpose of this meeting is to assist in prioritizing the resource concerns at a county level for the Natural Resource Conservation Service’s programs including EQIP (Environmental Quality Incentives Program) and WHIP (Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program). This meeting gives members of the community a chance to make recommendations on our local natural resource priorities and criteria for conservation activities and programs. This meeting will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

The second meeting is the annual Stakeholder Meeting for the Lower Eel River Watershed 319 Grant. The purpose of this meeting is to update members of the community on the progress, and accomplishments of the Lower Eel River Watershed 319 Grant.  This will include an overview of the conservation practices, educational events, and water quality monitoring completed through the grant thus far. It will also include an outlook for the coming year including future events, remaining cost-share money available, and potential future grant funding. This is an opportunity to get updated on, or become familiar with the Lower Eel River Watershed 319 grant. It is also a valuable opportunity to provide your insight and feedback for grant programs and events for the coming year. This meeting will take place from 7:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Following these annual meetings, the Clay County SWCD will be holding their regularly scheduled monthly meeting. Attendees are welcome to stay for this meeting if they would like. If you have any questions please contact the Clay County SWCD at 812-446-8986 ext. 3.
