Volunteer week banner

USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) takes pleasure in recognizing and honoring its Earth Team Volunteers during National Volunteer Week, April 15-21, 2018.  In fiscal year 2017, more than 34,309 volunteers donated 325,601 hours of service to NRCS. Their donated hours are valued at $7.8 million for that period.

Since 1985,  Earth Team volunteers have provided a valued source of talent and enthusiasm to the USDA/NRCS. Every day, these dedicated volunteers work with conservation professionals on private lands to improve soil quality, conserve water, improve air quality and enhance wildlife habitat.

Available to anyone 14 and older, the Earth Team provides a variety of opportunities: full- or part-time; outdoor or indoor activities; and as an individual or part of a group. There is something for everyone.
