About NRCS in Rhode Island

The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is a federal agency that works hand-in-hand with the people of Rhode Island and the Ocean State's three 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.
