Who we are ... Our agency's mission is to provide resources to farm owners and land owners to aid them in conservation. NRCS employs approximately 11,500 people in its 2,900 offices, 90 percent of whom work outside of the Washington, D.C. area. NRCS operates in numerous communities across North America, working hand-in-hand with landowners and our partners to improve our natural resources. Our passion is derived from stewardship of the land and the benefits we all enjoy as a result, such as cleaner air and water, improved soil, and abundant wildlife habitat.
Our history ... What originally began as the Soil Conservation Service in 1935 is now known as the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), a name change that highlights our broader mission of conservation. Bringing 60 years of scientific and technical expertise to the conservation industry, we are involved with activities that help benefit soil, water, plants, air, and animals. With seventy percent of U.S. land privately owned, partnership with private landowners is critical to the health of our nation’s land. By providing assistance to landowners, we help to cultivate productive lands and healthy ecosystems.
