The Missoula Conservation District is holding countywide Community Listening Sessions including the Missoula Public Library on Tuesday, June 27 at 6:00 pm. Meetings are open to all Missoula County landowners and residents.
People can attend and express their natural resource concerns and priorities, both for their own private land and for the County as a whole. Feedback received during the sessions will be used to inform the next Long Range Plan, a plan that sets the District's goals and priorities, including grant programs, for the next five years.
Here is the link to our listening sessions webpage: http://missoulacd.org/about-us/long-range-plan/
If you cannot attend, please take the On Line survey.
