NRCS will be holding an informational session to provide an update on easement programs coming out of the New Farm Bill. If you are interested in any of these programs please consider taking the opportunity to meet with State Program Manager Bari Williams April 8, at the Roseburg BLM office.
The Agricultural Conservation Easement Program (ACEP) provides financial and technical assistance to help conserve agricultural lands and wetlands and their related benefits.
· Agricultural Land Easements: working with Indian tribes, state and local governments and non-governmental organizations to protect working agricultural lands and limit non-agricultural uses of the land.
· Wetlands Reserve Easements: to restore, protect and enhance enrolled wetlands.
These programs replace former easement programs: Farm and Ranch Land Protection Program (FRPP), Wetlands Reserve Program (WRP)
