About NRCS in Massachusetts

The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is a federal agency that works hand-in-hand with the people of Massachusetts and the commonwealth's 14 conservation districts to improve and protect their soil, water and other natural resources. We employ conservation experts who help landowners develop conservation plans, create and restore wetlands, restore and manage other natural ecosystems as well as advise on stormwater remediation, nutrient and animal waste management and watershed planning.

There are seven NRCS field offices in Massachusetts: Greenfield (serving Franklin County), Hadley (serving Hampden and Hampshire counties), Holden (serving Worcester County), Pittsfield (serving Berkshire County), Wareham (serving Bristol, Norfolk and Plymouth counties), Westford (serving Essex, Middlesex and Suffolk counties), and West Yarmouth (serving Barnstable, Dukes and Nantucket counties).
