6:00pm - 8:00pm
Free Workshop - Dinner Provided
Farm and Forest Landowners Please Register by Friday, February 27th
There are a wide variety land management and land conservation programs available to farmer and forest landowners in Virginia. It can often be overwhelming trying to learn which programs and funding source might work best for you and your particular property. In order to help landowners sort through these programs, a variety of state agencies and private organizations are partnering to offer a free 2-hour presentation at the Rockfish Valley Community Center in Afton, Virginia.
During this 2-hour workshop, attendees will hear from the Soil and Water Conservation District about their 100% cost share program for livestock fencing, the Virginia Department of Forestry on their assistance with Forest Stewardship Plans and their Reforestation of Timberlands Cost Share Program, and the Virginia Outdoors Foundation will talk about their conservation easement program and a new “Farmer Friendly” conservation easement template that they developed in cooperation with the Farm Bureau and VDACS. In addition, the Natural Resource Conservation Service will give a presentation on wildlife habitat programs and the related land management options and sources of funding available to landowners. The Chesapeake Bay Foundation will tout the benefits of land conservation for water quality.
For questions and to register by Friday, February 27th contact Rex Linville, Piedmont Environmental Council at firstname.lastname@example.org or (434) 977-2033.
