The mission of the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is to address the natural resource conservation on private lands. NRCS defines "conservation" as wise use of natural resources - soil, water, air, plant, and animal - in order to sustain productivity of current and future generations.

Welcome to NRCS in California!

Carlos Suarez, State Conservationist

He provides state leadership for operations and program management for 55 field offices, four area offices, a plant materials center, and the state office in Davis.
