A rea landowners have input of resources

Local land owners in each county will have the opportunity to produce input concerning what the real natural resource needs are in the community.

At the Cameron Chamber of Commerce (102 E. First Street) on July 6 at 10 a.m., the Natural Resources Conservation Service will conduct a meeting for area landowners.

The purpose of the Resource Conservation and Development (RC&D) program is to accelerate the conservation, development and utilization of natural resources, improve the general level of economic activity, and to enhance the environment and standard of living in designated RC&D areas.

It improves the capability of State, tribal and local units of government and local nonprofit organizations in rural areas to plan, develop and carry out programs for resource conservation and development.

The program also establishes or improves coordination systems in rural areas.

Current program objectives focus on improvement of quality of life achieved through natural resources conservation and community development which leads to sustainable communities, prudent use (development), and the management and conservation of natural resources.

RC&D areas are locally sponsored areas designated by the Secretar y of Agriculture for RC& D technical and financial assistance program funds.
