For more than 80 years the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), and its predecessor the Soil Conservation Service, have been helping to address natural resource concerns.
NRCS recently set a benchmark in historic preservation in central Maine by helping protect an archeological site eligible for the National Register of Historic Places.
An NRCS project that restored an aquatic organism passage in southern Maine may have prevented an environmental disaster on one of the area’s most important salmon-spawning streams.
As part of the 2015 “International Year of the Soils” initiative, NRCS hosted a day-long seminar on the importance of soil health to Maine agriculture, during Maine Farm Days in Kennebec County.
Conservationists from six New England states came together in Maine July 28-31 to hone their skills at assisting landowners to voluntarily conserve natural resources.
