Bookcliff and South Side conservation districts offer vegetation cost share program

The Bookcliff and South Side conservation districts have partnered with EnCana Oil & Gas (USA) Inc. to provide a cost-share program for rural land owners to establish permanent vegetation on their land. Fall is a good time to plant, and its not too early to develop a planting plan. The program is designed to protect the resources from wind or water erosion, invasive plants or degradation of pasture, hay or rangeland due to declining species. The program does not include commodity crops.The conservation districts can assist landowners in their vegetation management plans to complete an application for the cost-share program. Its important to consider soils, selection of plant species, planting methods, pest management and maintenance to better improve planting success. Practices that can be cost-shared include, but are not limited to, seedbed preparation, seed and cost of renting planting equipment.For an application or more information, call the conservation district office at 945-5494, ext. 101.
