How to Meet Your Land Conservation Goals

By Helen Brody (June 5, 2012)

What: How Federal Conservation Programs Can Help Meet Your Land Conservation Goals

When: Tuesday June 19, 2012 –  6-8:30pm 

Where: Stonewall Farm, 242 Chesterfield Rd, Keene NH

The Farm and Ranchland Protection Program (FRPP) and the Wetlands Reserve Program (WRP) are national programs available to farmers and landowners in New Hampshire to help them achieve their land protection goals.  Come learn about these two programs and how working together with a land trust, your town or the state can help.

  Program: 

  •  Representatives from the USDA, Natural Resources Conservation Service will explain how these programs work and how your land can qualify
  • Ann McBride of the Monadnock Conservancy will talk about how her organization and other land trusts work with land owners to create a land protection package.
  • Landowners who have utilized the programs will explain how it has worked for them.

The public is invited to this free seminar to come learn about these two programs and how working together with a land trust or your town can help you protect your land. A special emphasis of this seminar is to reach out to people who have not traditionally utilized Conservation Program services of USDA. Historically under served and limited resource farmers and landowners are especially invited.  A $75 stipend will be provided to any workshop participant that meets the USDA criteria of “historically underserved” (e.g. ethnic groups or women landowners)

PLEASE RSVP.  To register and for more information on this workshop  call the Conservation District at 603-756-2988 ext.116, email amanda@cheshireconservation.org, or visit www.cheshireconservation.org

This seminar is sponsored by the North Country Resource Conservation and Development (RC&D) Area Council, the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), The Monadnock Conservancy, and the Cheshire County Conservation District.
