USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service


Who We Are

NRCS directly serves America’s farmers, ranchers, and forest managers by providing them with financial and technical assistance, or advice, for their land. Our goal is to give our customers free, personalized advice and information, based on the latest science and research, to help them make informed conservation decisions.

Many of our staff work one-on-one with agricultural producers to provide them the knowledge and tools they need to conserve, maintain, and restore the natural resources on their lands and improve the health of their operations for the future.

At the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) we need people who are committed to action. People who want to apply their education and experience to make sure that all of us enjoy the benefits of productive soil, clean water, clean air, and abundant wildlife that come from a healthy environment. NRCS offers career opportunities in Natural Resources and Conservation.

Our Conservation Careers include Soil Conservationists and Soil Conservation Technicians, Engineers, Soil Scientists, Rangeland Management Specialists, Biologists, and many more. NRCS also hires in the fields of finance, human resources, public and legislative affairs, and other professional fields aimed at supporting NRCS to meet its mission.
