On May 7, the Flint River Soil and Water Conservation District and USDA-NRCS hosted a signing ceremony for the Regional Conservation Partnership Program at Oxbow Meadows Environmental Learning Center in Columbus, Georgia. USDA-NRCS and District leaders gathered to mark the beginning of the Flint District’s national RCPP initiative for the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint River Basin, which spans Alabama, Florida, and Georgia.
