McPherson County landowners who want to be considered for financial assistance to help with expenses related to natural resources on their property need to contact the McPherson County Conservation District by the end of this week.

Landowners with environmental concerns on their property may be eligible for cost-share in the conservation program. Some examples of eligible concerns include waterways, terraces, native grasses, and bringing livestock operations and septic systems up to code.

The McPherson County Conservation District serves to support local conservation of land, water, and the development of wildlife habitat.

Funding for the cost-share program is provided by the Division of Conservation, Kansas Department of Agriculture, through appropriation from the Kansas Water Plan Fund.

For more information on the conservation program and to find out if your concerns qualify for cost-share assistance, contact the McPherson County District Office by calling 620-241-1836 ext. 200, or stop by their office at 200 S. Centennial in McPherson.

Landowners can sign-up for the program until the end of business on Friday, June 10.
