Applications are accepted for the Farmland Preservation Commission | New

Concerned about the future of farming in Crawford County? You can make a difference by serving on the board of the Agricultural Land Preservation Board.

Pennsylvania leads the nation in the number of farms and acres permanently preserved for agricultural production.

The program secures a future food supply and contributes to a healthier economy. It also ensures a way of life cherished by Pennsylvanians for generations to come.

The program is a partnership between all levels of government and not-for-profit organizations — with a common goal of saving prime farmland.

Sitting on the Farmland Preservation Board is a great way to impact the future of Crawford County, officials said. The council meets quarterly to conduct business, educate and create policy. Board members are not remunerated.

Those interested in becoming a director of the Crawford County Farmland Preservation Board must complete an application questionnaire and submit it to the Crawford County Conservation District by November 1.
