Area Ag Producers Invited to Annual Local Work Group Meeting

Klock Farm integrates many conservation practices.

Farmers, ranchers, foresters, nursery growers and other land managers are invited to the 2023 Local Work Group Meeting.

Agricultural producers in Clackamas and Multnomah Counties are invited to an annual Local Work Group Meeting. This meeting will be held in Beavercreek, OR on February 15, 2023 from 10:00 a.m. until noon. Agricultural producers include farmers, ranchers, foresters, nursery growers, and other land managers who have natural resource concerns.

What is a Local Work Group Meeting?

Each year, local Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) field offices around the state hold Local Work Group Meetings. These meetings provide an opportunity for NRCS staff to hear from the people they serve in their communities. Local landowners and conservation partners know first-hand about the natural resource needs in their area. This locally-led process helps inform conservation priorities and strategies across Oregon.


Participants help:

  • identify where the best investments can be made to address natural resource problems,
  • share the work that has already been done in the county, and
  • share their vision for what the county will look like when these natural resource concerns have been addressed.

Based on feedback from those meetings, NRCS updates the county Long Range Plan and develops new Conservation Implementation Strategies to address identified resource concerns.

Join us on February 15th – We want to hear from you!
