NASHVILLE, February 22, 2020 - The United States Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service recently unveiled a new video series titled, Conservation at Work, which consists of short, 90-second videos that highlight common conservation practices.

Two of West Tennessee's field offices and producers were highlighted in the national videos.

The videos shine the spotlight on farmers, ranchers and forestland owners from across the U.S. who tell us their own conservation stories on how practices are helping them protect and improve resources and save time and money.

“We are very proud to be one of the states to be highlighted in this conservation video series,” said Tennessee NRCS State Conservationist Sheldon Hightower.By sharing the conservation successes of our customers, we hope these videos will help educate our customers and the general public and motivate more farmers and landowners to consider conservation.

In one video, Carroll County District Conservationist James Woodall and Kim Renfroe-Johnson discuss Water and Sediment Control Basins – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IQ5Gj4bvbQU&feature=youtu.be.
