Regional. Conservation. Partnership. Program. Each of those four words serve parallel roles when implementing a USDA-NRCS RCPP. However, "Partnership" takes on a new meaning with Farm Bill 2018 RCPPs. Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District and The Conservation Fund will discuss their lessons learned and what it takes to implement an $18 million RCPP in Southeastern Wisconsin. The session will review our mistakes and adaptations with implementing entity-held easements (yes, we have acquired easements!), and land management (obligated >$1.4 million in two years!), land rental (the hidden gem), outreach, education, research, staffing, funding and how we support our partners to achieve outcomes. Throughout the session, we will open the discussion to all attendees to describe their road blocks, mistakes, adaptations, lessons learned and to bring their issues to the group for insight and guidance... taking "Partnership" to another level at Rally.
