Jackson County Soil and Water Conservation District invites the public to participate in its annual Local Work Group survey.
The purpose of the survey is to provide input on the wide range of natural resource and agricultural concerns for Jackson County, according to a news release from the district.
The survey results provide recommendations on local natural resource priorities and criteria for conservation activities and programs, including the Environmental Quality Incentives Program, Clean Water Indiana grants and others.
This year, the group also is asking for input on the Local Work Group survey form to discuss how well Indiana’s current technical information and programs address the local resource concerns.
The survey consists of representatives who are able to provide input into the wide range of natural resource and agricultural concerns for the county, and the district believes local land users would provide this valuable input.
To request a survey, contact the district office at 812-358-2367, ext. 3, or stop by the office at 1350 Woodside Drive, Brownstown.
Surveys need to be returned by Oct. 27 to allow the district to compile the results.
