A panel of local landowners who have tapped into some Federal programs to accomplish some of their conservation goals will share their experiences. Polk County residents Michael Skindrud, Marilyn Essex, Ed Weisensee and Sarah Deumling will speak on their experiences with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and the US Fish and Wildlife (USFW) Partners Program.
Hear about projects on pre-commercial thinning, reduction of ladder fuels, riparian planting, brush management and forest stand improvement. NRCS and USFW staff will be available to provide information on their assistance programs. This is a great opportunity to see if you might use these programs to improve your forest’s health!
