The Natural Resources Conservation Service in partnership with the Finney, Kearny and Hamilton county conservation districts will conduct a Local Work Group meeting at 11 a.m. Thursday at the Memorial Building, 207 N. Main, Lakin.

The agenda includes a review of the current NRCS financial assistance programs, a review of the prioritized resource concerns within the three-county area, development of recommendations on NRCS programs for the state conservationist, and identifying public outreach and information needs.

LWGs provide recommendations on local and state natural resource priorities and criteria for U.S. Department of Agriculture conservation activities and programs to the NRCS Kansas Technical Committee.
