Natural Resources Conservation Services celebrates 75th anniversary

This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). Originally established as the Soil Conservation Service by Congress in 1935, NRCS works with landowners to ensure the conservation and restoration of the soil, water, air, plants, and animals that result in productive lands and healthy ecosystems. NRCS works at the local level, with field offices at USDA Service Centers in nearly every county.

Contact Terry Bish in NRCS’s publicaffairs division at 202-720-5974 or to learn how to partner on commemorative activities.
In celebration of the long conservation history of NRCS, the video “A Legacy of Conservation” is available for viewing at
