Description/Notes: 

On February 18, USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service will offer you a unique opportunity to participate in the national dialogue on cover crops and soil health. Mark your calendar to attend a streaming video presentation from the National Conference on Cover Crops and Soil Health in Omaha, Nebraska, at two locations in Maryland.

The central theme of this national forum is to discuss what we can do, collectively, to increase the health and function of our soil – one farm at a time. We've asked you to participate in this event because your thoughts, insights, support and participation will be critical to our efforts in Maryland. Join us at 8:45 a.m. to learn why improving soil health may be the most important conservation endeavor of our generation.

RSVP to Nora De La Rosa at nora.delarosa@md.usda.gov or 443-482-2907 by February 6th.
