Volunteering for the Earth Team provides many opportunities to help conserve New Mexico's resources in your community. NRCS is looking for volunteers to work on a variety of projects. Whatever your talents or interests are, there is a good chance you will be able to make a difference by calling your local NRCS Field Office or call 1-888-LANDCARE.
THE ROLLING RIVER
Loaded with several hundred pounds of sand and a self-contained tank for pumping and re-circulating water, bright blue utility trailers are ready to provide water education to New Mexico school children. The New Mexico Rolling Rivers are modeled on trailers that were designed and used in Colorado.
NRCS New Mexico is very proud and grateful for the nearly 200 volunteers who contributed to nearly every facet of work that we do. These volunteers were in the field working shoulder to shoulder with our natural resource specialists to collect data, conduct research, and work directly with the private landowners of New Mexico.
Who Can Volunteer?
Anyone 14 years of age or older and interested in conserving our precious natural resources can join the Earth Team. You can work part-time or full-time, evenings or weekends, outdoors or in an local NRCS office. You can volunteer as an individual or as a group!
Where Volunteers Can Help?
On the Land - with professional conservationists who are working directly with farmers and ranchers.
In schools - with elementary and high schools, college and university students. Through camps and classes, you can introduce young people to the wonders of nature.
With organizations - youth groups, professional societies, or civic groups. All types of organizations are joining together to sponsor water quality education campaigns, community beautification, and erosion control projects. Cooperative Earth Team efforts can help solve many natural resource problems in your area.
In offices - where NRCS or your conservation district may want to use your talents for clerical assistance, organizing information in a computer, preparing newsletters, or educating others about natural resource conservation.
