District helps verify environmental protection steps by farmers

January 29, 2019by ncdea

MICHIGAN, Lapeer CD – The Lapeer Conservation District is working to keep Lapeer County the haven for natural beauty it’s known for by residents and visitors alike, and according to a new report recently released, they’re contributing to a good system.

MAEAP Technician, Rob Malcomnson, a Conservation District employee, assists numerous farms with getting ready to be verified, in both Lapeer and Macomb counties. After five years of verified status, farms can be re-verified. Total numbers of initial verifications and re-verifications for FY18 are 33 for Lapeer County and seven for Macomb County. “Over the last four very busy years, the combined total for the two-county area is 162,” said Malcomnson.
