No matter where you live, or what you do, it’s clear to all of us COVID-19 is affecting our daily lives, and how we communicate with family, friends and everyone we deal with in our community. Like others, your Conservation District and NRCS office are practicing social distancing to help prevent spread of this dreadful virus.
If you find you are staying close to home with time to consider your options for best care of your land, this might be a good time to look closer at practices and programs that can help you.
