Pennsylvania USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS)
Our Mission: Helping People Help the Land
Our Vision: Productive Lands – Healthy Environment
Since 1935, the Natural Resources Conservation Service (originally called the Soil Conservation Service) has provided leadership in a partnership effort to help America’s private land owners and managers conserve their soil, water, and other natural resources. NRCS employees provide technical assistance based on sound science and suited to a customer’s specific needs. We provide financial assistance for many conservation activities. Participation in our programs is voluntary.
