Volunteer For The Earth Team
NRCS Wisconsin Earth Team Volunteer Program
The job of conserving natural resources cannot be done by government alone. The collective talents and energies of private individuals and groups are needed. Since 1981, the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) has provided an opportunity for volunteers to use their talents and abilities on behalf of conservation. these volunteers are known as the Earth Team. NRCS is proud of the dedicated Earth Team volunteers and staff who have committed their time and talents to conserving and protecting our natural resources.

Who Can Volunteer?
Anyone who is 14 years of age or older can volunteer their services to the Natural Resources Conservation Service. Help reduce soil erosion, conserve our water and improve its quality, carry the conservation message to schools, and take pride in our country's natural resource heritage. Whatever your talents or interests, there is a volunteer opportunity for you. You will help your community, your country and our Earth. Volunteers write articles for newsletters, take photos of conservation practices, learn computer and office skills through on-the-job training, prepare and staff environmental exhibits for special events, assist with engineering design and drafting, plan conservation practice field demonstrations, mark fields on soil maps, measure crop residue, or work with professional staff on a variety of projects.
