Conservation Technical Assistance (CTA)

Has your property been affected by wildfire? Are you unsure about what to do now and who to turn to for help? There are many factors that can affect your property after a wildfire. Because the vegetation that usually holds the soil in place has burned, there is no longer an anchor to stop soil from eroding. This can cause a whole new set of concerns such as debris flows, stream degradation, and noxious weed invasion. There are actions you can take now to help protect your property and avoid further damage.

The information in the “factsheets and within the “Colorado–Landowning Style” publication listed below” may be useful to you in making decisions about what practices to implement to help mitigate or recover from damage caused by a natural disaster. For technical assistance that will help in properly planning, installing, and maintaining practices to conserve your resources, contact your local NRCS field office office.

The Conservation Technical Assistance (CTA) program is a voluntary program that provides technical assistance supported by science-based technology and tools to help people conserve, maintain, and improve their natural resources.

The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is the Department of Agriculture's principal agency for providing conservation technical assistance to private landowners, conservation districts, tribes, and other organizations through a national network of locally respected, technically skilled, professional conservationists. These conservationists deliver consistent, science-based, site-specific solutions to help private landowners voluntarily conserve, maintain, and improve the Nation's natural resource base. The Conservation Technical Assistance (CTA) Program is the foundation of this conservation technical assistance and serves to focus on natural resource issues at the local level that are of local, State, multi-state, and national concern.
