"The targeted conservation effort accomplishes two objectives. First it invigorates the locally led process through our conservation districts and encourages them to actively address local resource concerns," said Phyllis Ann Philipps, Colorado NRCS State Conservationist.

The emphasis for these projects is on obtaining tangible resource benefits."
