Local Conservation is the theme for the annual meeting of the DeWitt County Soil and Water Conservation District this Friday.
SWCD's Sondra Baker says they will welcome Dr. A Lane Rayburn from the University of Illinois. She adds they also take the opportunity to promote the programs of the SWCD and the things they do in the area.
If a good speaker wasn't enough to attract local producers or those interested in conservation, Baker says they'll be offering a locally raised breakfast.
Part of the business meeting will include two-persons elected to two-year terms to the Board of Directors.
The event is free although the SWCD will accept donations to help offset the cost of the meal. You can RSVP by contacting Baker at 217-935-6504 EXT 3.
Again the annual Soil Water Conservation District annual meeting is this Friday morning at 8 am.
