The purpose and passion for Florida's conservation is shared among many. It is shared between NRCS employees and partners who help people help the land. And it is shared by the landowners with whom we work. Our passion is manifested through the benefits derived from stewardship of private lands—benefits we all enjoy, such as cleaner water and air, improved soils and abundant wildlife habitat.
Learn about our stories, the stories of conservation made possible through a shared purpose, a shared passion and a shared commitment to conservation.
