Thank you to everyone who joined the Alameda County Conservation Partnership at the Purple Orchid Resort and Spa for our Annual Meeting!
There was a true sense of community throughout the evening, as local agriculture producers, land-managers, and industry professionals came together to discuss current issues, share success stories, and learn more about technical topics. Summer is clearly over, and unfortunately the cold weather cut our final round of speakers short.
As we were unable to hear an update from the NRCS District Conservationist, Alyson Aquino, we are providing a written update of her report. Read the full report here. Or, find out what the NRCS has been up to over the past year, learn more about the Environmental Quality Incentives Program, or read about the NRCS's partnership with Point Blue.
This year's technical sessions focused on soil health, and using barn owls as part of an integrated pest management plan. To view or download PDFs of the presentations and other materials from the sessions, click the links below. (Check back soon as we will continue to add materials to this list.)
Additionally, find more information about the local producers who contributed food for the evening here, or download the 2016 Crop Report.

The task force meets semi-annually at the Martinelli Event Center, and rural residents are welcome to attend. The task force has successfully seen some of their suggestions successfully implemented, such as rotating the sites for the electronic speed indicator.
