The USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is seeking input about Bastrop County’s natural resources concerns to guide funding priorities for Farm Bill programs in Bastrop County. This year stakeholders can provide input either online or in person. We encourage all farmers, ranchers, federal, state and local agencies, agricultural leaders, organizations, businesses and other individuals who have an interest in natural resource conservation to provide their input.
