Are you interested in climate adaptation and mitigation projects on your farm or forest land? The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) provides technical and financial assistance to plan and implement conservation work. Come visit a farm that has completed a conservation plan with NRCS, and learn about the process and outcomes. This is also an opportunity to meet members of Cooperative Extension and your local Soil and Water Conservation District, and learn how they can support your work. The third stop is at McDougal Orchards in Sanford. McDougal Orchards is a diversified seventh generation family farm specializing in the production of high quality apples for sale to pick-your-own and farm stand customers.
