The Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts is getting geared up for its annual meeting this weekend.

The statewide group's 77th annual meeting begins Sunday and runs through Tuesday in Midwest City.

U.S. Rep. Markwayne Mullin from Oklahoma's 2nd Congressional District is the meeting's keynote speaker.

During the meeting, conservationists are expected to discuss subjects such as improving soil health, water quality and maintaining upstream flood control dams.

The theme of the meeting is "Back to the Future" to honor the group's history of accomplishments.

Its president, Kim Farber, says that without the diligent work of conservationists over the past eight decades, Oklahoma would be in the middle of another Dust Bowl as the state enters its fifth year of crippling drought.
