The Oklahoma Conservation Commission has announced Program Year 15 of the state’s Locally-Led Conservation Cost-Share Program. The program began in 1997 with the goal of improving reducing soil erosion and water quality by providing financial assistance to landowners for applying soil and water conservation practices.
At the conservation district’s October board meeting, the local criteria for the program year was selected. The practices that were approved are brush management, ponds, pasture and hay planting, pipeline, pest management, water facility and water well.
Applicants must be a district cooperator within the Pushmataha Conservation District and must certify that they own, or operate at least 20 acres of land from which at least $1000 of soil dependent products are sold annually.
It interested in the cost-share program, applications may be picked up at the Pushmataha Conservation District office located at 510 Highway 271 North, Antlers, Tuesday, January 21st until Monday, February 3, 2014, from 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
