The National Association of Conservation Districts took on Capitol Hill just days after President Trump’s disappoint budget proposal. Members of the group addressed conservation programs in the farm bill, funding of conservation program, technical assistance for conservation efforts, as well as voluntary conservation as they made their visits.

“Today our members will hit the halls of Congress to meet with their representatives and senators face-to-face to discuss the most pressing natural resource issues affecting their districts and communities,” NACD President Brent Van Dyke said.

Participants will also get to hear from Pat Roberts, chairman of the Senate Agriculture Committee and Frank Lucas and Marcia Fudge, chairman and ranking member of the House Agriculture Subcommittee on Conservation and Forestry.
