During National Volunteer Week, the Ohio Natural Resources Conservation Service celebrates the extraordinary service Earth Team Volunteers provide to Ohio residents and the environment. This is a time to say thank you for being an Earth Team volunteer and a valued member of the conservation team!
The NRCS theme for this year's National Volunteer Week is “Volunteers Improve Today for Tomorrow” and there is a lot to celebrate!
Good progress has been made to improve Ohio's natural resources with the help of approximately 5,000 volunteers in 2015. Earth Team volunteers are involved in many of the conservation projects across Ohio. In 2015 alone, Ohio Earth Team Volunteers donated 36,722 hours doing things like streamlining processes, conducting National Resources Inventories, demonstrating cover crops, planting and harvesting People's Gardens for local food bank donations, and educating people about conservation in their communities. Their dedication and passion reflect great credit upon the Earth Team volunteers and the Natural Resources Conservation Service. Please join with us in celebrating National Volunteer Week as we enjoy the conservation contributions that Ohio’s Earth Team volunteers make every day.
