NMACD DIRECTORY

 

The NMACD Directory is published once annually and normally distributed during the Annual Conference in the fall. The NMACD 2021 Directory has been distributed electronically to all Soil and Water Conservation Districts. We will continue to maintain an updated on-line version as updates are received. A record log is also maintained to record changes in pages throughout the year for your reference. Both files are contained in the .pdf files below. If you have any questions, please contact Linda Hood (Linda.Hood@q.com, 505-681-9675).

ACTION MESSAGES

ACTION MESSAGE 1:

From: Daley Burns <Daley.Burns@NFWF.ORG>

Sent: Tuesday, August 10, 2021 8:41 AM

You are receiving this email as a past applicant to National Fish and Wildlife Foundation’s programs within the Southern Great Plains Landscape which includes eastern Colorado, Kansas, southern Nebraska, northeastern New Mexico, Oklahoma, and the Texas Panhandle. We have released an inaugural Southern Plains Grassland Program 2022 Request for Proposals which can be viewed here:

https://www.nfwf.org/programs/southern-plains-grassland-program/southern-plains-grassland-program-2022-request-proposals

 

The Southern Plains Grassland Program seeks to work closely with nonprofit and government partners and the ranching community to bring important financial and technical resources to improve grassland ecosystem health and resilience to climate change in the Southern Great Plains. These actions will boost the vitality of this often-overlooked ecosystem, providing benefits to wildlife and to rural, ranching-based communities. These actions increase the ability of grasslands to store carbon, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and provide key benefits to address climate change.

Full Proposals are due Thursday, November 4th 2021, by 10:59 pm CT / 9:59 pm MT.

We will be holding an Applicant Webinar on Thursday, August 19th 2021 at 11 am CT / 10 am MT.

You can register for the webinar here: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/7881557050369696016
