USDA NRCS

Location: STATEWIDE, Texas

The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is a federal agency working hand-in-hand with the people of Texas to improve and protect our soil, water and other natural resources. For decades, private landowners have voluntarily worked with NRCS specialists to prevent erosion, improve water quality, and promote sustainable agriculture. Founded in 1935, NRCS was initially focused on preventing soil erosion on America’s farmland; however, over the years as Americans have become concerned with a broader array of natural resource issues, NRCS has broadened its technical services. Today, NCRS provides science-based solutions to address America’s ever-changing environmental concerns. While farmers and ranchers remain the primary customers of NRCS, the agency also provides technical assistance to city planners, watershed groups, state and local governments and civic organizations. NRCS employs numerous occupational disciplines including soil conservationists, rangeland management specialists, soil scientists, agronomists, biologists, engineers, geologists, engineers and foresters. These experts help landowners develop conservation plans, create and restore wetlands and restore and manage other natural ecosystems.
