Conservation is the work of many--no one can do it alone. The Natural Resources Conservation Service relies on many partners to help set conservation goals, work with people on the land, and provide services. Our partners are from both the public and private sector and include soil and water conservation districts; resource conservation and development councils; local communities; state and Federal agencies; Earth Team volunteers; agricultural, conservation, and environmental groups; agribusiness; and professional societies.
Independently, partnership members have separate responsibilities for sustaining the environment and conserving the nation's natural resources. As partners in conservation, they speak with a unified voice and act to realize a common vision: A productive nation in harmony with a quality environment.
