Eighty years ago, Congress passed the Soil Conservation Act in response to the devastating effects of the Dust Bowl. USDA and farmers are still working together to address the natural resource challenges of today and tomorrow – for generations to come.
Local Working Groups assist the USDA in matters relating to the implementation and technical aspects of conservation programs under Title II of the 2014 Farm Bill. Meetings are being scheduled in county offices for Fiscal Year 2015. Meetings are open to the public.

Outreach is part of NRCS' daily business. We work to ensure that programs and services are made accessible to all customers. We'd like to reach you too! Please contact your local USDA Service Center if we can help you address your natural resource concerns.
Soil is a living and life-giving substance. Keeping our soil healthy and productive is of paramount importance. Visit "Unlock the Secrets of the Soil" and watch videos, obtain resources, and view other information about the importance of soil health.
