CRANDON, WI– The Forest County Land and Water Conservation Department in Crandon announced that it would be awarded funding through a 2019 NACD technical assistant (TA) grant, made possible through a partnership with the National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) and the USDA NRCS to build and strengthen technical capacity nationwide. The Land and Water Conservation Department will use TA grant funding to support the Working Forests Project in Forest County. 

Private landowners can voluntarily join the Working Forest Protection Program. Once enrolled, landowners will be provided with resources and cost share opportunities to create stewardship management plans and complete conservation projects that will maintain the working forest status and retain timber production, recreational and cultural uses and conservation values.
