Earth Team Volunteers
When you sign on as an Earth Team volunteer you are on your way to becoming a caretaker of natural resources in your community. You may find yourself helping farmers, ranchers and other landowners prevent wind and water erosion, conserving and cleaning up water, enhancing wildlife habitat, reducing flooding or helping citizens of all ages learn about the environment and conservation through exciting educational activities.
The Earth Team needs people with variety of skills and talents. As an Earth Team volunteer, you can join professional conservationists as they work directly with local farmers and ranchers in putting conservation practices on the land. You also may play an important part in improving wildlife habitat or taking inventories of natural resources.
The Earth Team offers outstanding and exciting opportunities to gain professional work experience or academic credit. Who knows? After serving on the Earth Team, you may decide to pursue a career in conservation.
Who Can Volunteer?
Anyone 14 years of age or older and interested in conserving our precious natural resources can be an Earth Team volunteer. You can volunteer part-time or full-time and work outdoors or in a local NRCS office. You can volunteer as an individual or join a group.
