For over 30 years, Jerry L. Johnson served conservation in Alabama. As NRCS State Staff Forester, he worked with the conservation partnership to assist landowners with natural resource concerns. His work and dedication positively impacted the forest, wildlife, and water resources of our state.  He passed away on December 31, 2003, after a lengthy battle with cancer, only a few months after retiring from the agency.
