'This American Land' and NRCS

This American Land

Conservationists with USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service help put conservation practices on the ground each day, and that work will make an appearance on the big screen in fall 2013. A public television series – “This American Land” – will showcase NRCS in three episodes of its third season.

Check your local listings for scheduled air dates because they differ by public television station.
