About NRCS in Rhode Island
NRCS 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.

NRCS Provides Support Backed by Science and Research
The Rhode Island Ecological Sciences Division provides training and resources for environmental compliance and resource concern assessment under the NRCS 9-step Conservation Planning process, and provides expertise on agroforestry, forage, native plants, fish & wildlife, and cultural resources.
The NRCS Rhode Island Engineering Division provides innovative engineering solutions to natural resource conservation challenges in the Ocean State.
The Rhode Island Soils Division is part of the National Cooperative Soil Survey (NCSS) program - a nationwide partnership of federal, regional, state, and local agencies and institutions. This partnership cooperatively investigates, inventories, documents, classifies, and interprets soils and disseminates, publishes, and promotes the use of information about soils in the Ocean State.
