Natural Resources Conservation Service
Historical & Cultural Sites
||Originally established by Congress in 1935 as the Soil Conservation Service (SCS), NRCS has expanded to become a conservation leader for all natural resources, ensuring private lands are conserved, restored, and more resilient to environmental challenges, like climate change. NRCS works with landowners through conservation planning and assistance designed to benefit the soil, water, air, plants, and animals that result in productive lands and healthy ecosystems.
Students volunteering with the NRCS can expect to help staff with general office duties such as filing, faxing, and printing paperwork. On occasion, students will also join the NRCS team for field visits, which may include assisting with surveying property, inspection of structures, and meetings with landowners. Students should be willing to work outdoors in hot, humid weather.
