NRCS hails Earth Team volunteers

JACKSON, Miss. – This week, USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service hails Earth Team Volunteer efforts throughout the nation during National Volunteer Week. Our theme, “Volunteers Improve Today for Tomorrow,” uses the week of April 15-21, 2018 to show gratitude to Earth Team volunteers for their superb service to conservation.

Earth Team, is the agency’s volunteer workforce program that partners volunteers with NRCS employees. It was created in 1985 and offers many opportunities to individuals 14 and older who are interested in volunteering to improve the nation’s natural resources. Earth Team volunteers help NRCS conservationists provide private landowners and others with a range of services, from conservation technical assistance to teaching and generating awareness about conservation through community projects.   This past fiscal year, more than 34,309 people donated 325,601 hours of service to NRCS. Volunteers worked alongside NRCS to provide resources to farmers and landowners to aid them with conservation ­– a service value of more than $7.8 million.
