A Conservation Stewardship Program information and sign up session is set for 9 a.m., Thursday, Feb. 22, at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff . The event will be held at the S.J. Parker 1890 Extension Complex.


CSP is a voluntary program that helps farmers improve, maintain and manage conservation practices on their farms.


“Participants receive technical and financial assistance based on conservation performance – the higher the performance, the higher the payment,” according to a news release.


UAPB Small Farm Program Extension associates and retired Jefferson County district conservationist Levelle Foote will discuss the program and help attendees sign up for the CSP program.


Lunch will be served. To be included in the luncheon count or if participants have special needs, they should contact Bearlain Lewis at 870-575-8814 or lewisb@uapb.edu.
