Mario Albritton is one of many VA farmers reaping the benefits of good stewardship. He's seen a dramatic improvement in soil health, doubled yields, and reduced fertilizer applications. View video clip.
A new NRCS "Science to Solutions" report connects sustainable forestry practices to high-quality habitat/ breeding areas for golden-winged warblers and other imperiled wildlife. NRCS and our partners are working with landowners to maintain a healthy balance of old and young growth.
Invasive species from other parts of the world are spreading throughout Virginia in alarming numbers. A new partnership project with Blue Ridge PRISM seeks to contain these vines, trees and other plants that are destroying habitat and impacting fragile ecosystems throughout the Blue Ridge.
NRCS can provide funding and technical assistance to help you create/maintain habitat for golden-winged warbler and many other game and non-game species. Contact your local district conservationist to get started on a conservation plan to reach your goals for your land.
