John Wilson, State Conservationist

Ohio NRCS, led by our State Conservationist and our State Leadership Team. We serve Ohio’s 88 counties through 5 area offices and 75 field offices. NRCS-Ohio’s conservation initiatives offer financial and technical support to farmers and landowners, aiming to mitigate soil erosion, enhance water resources, improve water quality, promote wildlife habitats, and minimize flood-related damages.

In close collaboration with Ohio’s residents, we strive to enhance, safeguard, and conserve their soil, water, and other precious natural resources. Working alongside farmers and land stewards, we help combat erosion, improve water quality, champion sustainable agriculture, and maintain thriving wildlife habitats, ensuring a harmonious balance between productive lands and a healthy environment.

Our diverse team comprises soil conservationists, soil scientists, agronomists, biologists, engineers, geologists, and resource planners. Together with our many partners, they offer valuable resources to assist our clients in their conservation and preservation efforts through planning and implementation. We provide technical and financial assistance to help our customers do various things, from controlling soil erosion to improving air quality throughout Ohio.
