The Voluntary Stewardship Program was developed to help local landowners protect critical areas and avoid STATE REGULATION under the restrictive Critical Area Ordinance. There will be a public Zoom meeting at 7 p.m. October 5th to explain how local landowners can participate in this important program. The Zoom link can be accessed by clicking on the meeting poster below.
The good news is that our local ag. producers are constantly in the forefront in adopting conservation measures, demonstrating that ag. production and protection of critical areas can go hand-in-hand. The Voluntary Stewardship Program helps spread this good news to state agencies and the wider public.
