Event description

Description

All are cordially invited to Kent Conservation District's Annual Showcase and Dinner on Wednesday, March 18th, 6 pm at the Kent Career Technical Center. The Showcase presentation, Farm Stories 2020, will bring attention to resident agricultural producers, how they are over coming the many challenges of today while protecting the land we need for continuing prosperity tomorrow.

The program will begin with a special announcement on how Kent Innovative students are helping the invasive speices strike team prioritize invasive species treatments.

The showcase will also help landowners learn more about the many resources available to Kent Conservation District residents. Landowners can take advantage of funding for conservation practices to protect waterways through shelter belts and pollinator habitat. These services include the NRCS administered Farm Bill that offers easement programs to eligible landowners to conserve working agricultural lands, wetlands, grasslands and forestlands, the Forestry Assistance Program, and the Conservation Technical Assistance Initiative. By the end of the event you will be able to better describe what a conservation district is.

When: All are welcome to attend this special event on Wednesday, March 18th 5-8 pm.
Dinner will be served buffet style starting at 5 pm.
