The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and the Oklahoma Tribal Conservation Advisory Council (OTCAC) offer a free virtual webinar to get answers to your conservation questions and receive new information on conservation. Locally Led Conservation, Monarch Habitat and much more will be featured in the webinar at 1pm on December 21st.
Hughes, McIntosh, Pittsburg, and Seminole Conservation counties serve as hosts for this online tutorial. However, not only producers from all over Oklahoma, but across the region and the nation joined in webinars to gather very important information.
What will you gain from dedicating your time to this webinar? Troy Marshall of the USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service and the OTCAC Council will talk about “How the Agricultural Census is Beneficial for Producers”; Cody Parker, Tribal Conservative, NRCS Program, “Availability of Tribal Funding” will discuss; Rodrik Dukes, a conservation specialist at the Norwegian Red Cross, will discuss “the importance of a locally led process and concerns about local resources”; Amanda Stanford, NRCS Program Specialist, will present the “Five Simple Steps to Apply for NRCS Programs and Review Application”; Matt Ward, Resource Specialist for the Eastern District, will talk about “How is your application rated? The Conservation Assessment Rating Tool”; Spencer Bramble of FLM, FSA will present “NRCS Programs & Updates”. And we’ll cover, “Can you restore the king’s homeland by removing the eastern red cedar?”
“There has never been a better time than now to reach out to your local USDA service center and learn about all your options!” said Roderick Dukes, the district’s governor.
Working together is a key aspect of everything.
“With some of the limitations we are dealing with from COVID-19, it is more important than ever that the USDA and partners identify ways to continue to communicate and provide information to farmers and ranchers,” O’Neill said. “These webinars are a way in which information can be passed on to farmers and ranchers virtually and serve as a way to address their questions and concerns regarding available assistance and any new opportunities coming. I encourage land owners and operators to take advantage of these webinars as a way to learn about assistance opportunities and learn about directly on how this coordination can be an effective means of communicating and conveying important information.”
The webinar is open to the public. To attend, participants will need to pre-register and follow the link in the email generated after registering to attend. If reasonable accommodations is required, please notify Dr. Carol Crouch, NRCS, Carol.Crouch@ok.usda.gov.
