Join us for a free, in-person Landowner Resources Workshop where you'll learn about the USDA-NRCS' Agricultural Conservation Easement Program (ACEP) which helps landowners protect, restore, and enhance their land. The program provides long-term easements for both grasslands and wetlands that protect property from being converted to non-agricultural use.
The conservation easement helps landowners continue to own their land and pass down the land to future generations if so desired. Benefits of the ACEP include:
- Protects land from development and other non-agricultural uses
- Pays landowners to maintain ownership and keep land for agricultural purposes
- Improves water and air quality
- Protects forage and wildlife
A USDA-NRCS representative will serve as guest speaker who will discuss the details of ACEP and how to apply and enroll in the program. A free dinner will be provided and limited seats are available. Registration is required.
GIVEAWAY: The first 20 registrants who show up to the event will each receive a free $25 VISA gift card!
DOOR PRIZE: Five door prizes will be randomly given to attendees that include gift baskets containing locally grown fruits and vegetables.
**Must register AND attend the workshop to receive the giveaway and chance to win the door prizes.**
