February 6, 2018, 7:00 AM - 8:00 AM (US Central)

Lincoln, Nebraska

The Nebraska Chapter of the Soil and Water Conservation Society will hold its 35th Annual Legislative/Informational Breakfast between 7:00 to 8:00 a.m., February 6, 2018, in Room 124 of the Denney Federal Building, 100 Centennial Mall N, Lincoln, NE.

Our speaker, Corey Brubaker, State Conservation Agronomist for Nebraska NRCS, will be discussing conservation compliance with a focus on identifying and controlling ephemeral gully erosion.  In 2015, the Office of Inspector General (OIG) reviewed the implementation of Highly Erodible Land Compliance (HELC) activities in several states, including Nebraska. OIG found some inconsistencies in the administration of HELC policy in several states.  One inconsistency that was identified was the control of ephemeral erosion.  In response, Nebraska and several other states developed an informational campaign “Fix it. Don’t Disc it.” to educate producers about ephemeral erosion and encourage them to take steps to control it.  Mr. Brubaker’s presentation will describe what ephemeral erosion is and discuss various options for controlling it.

Please join us on Tuesday, February 6, 2018 from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. for rolls, juice and coffee in Room 124 of the Denney Federal Building, 100 Centennial Mall N, Lincoln, NE to hear more about this topic.  A nominal charge of $3 will be requested to cover refreshments.  The charge for students will be waived.

Note that visitor parking is available in the Federal garage to the south of the Federal Building, as well as free meter parking (until 8) on surrounding streets. In addition, security requires visitors to have photo ID and enter through metal detectors.
