Summer Region Meetings 2017

MACD regions each host a summer meeting to bring together local district board members, staff and partners to discuss local, regional and state level issues and activities.  These meetings also provide the host district a chance to share a special program, location or project within their county. 

Thank you to everyone who attended the summer region meetings and a special thank you to our host Conservation Districts!
