Natural Resources Conservation Service

The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), formerly the Soil Conservation Service, has been serving landowners since the Dust Bowl days of the 1930s. Originally formed to solve soil erosion problems, the NRCS has expanded its services and offers financial and technical assistance to help agricultural producers make and maintain conservation improvements on their land. The NRCS Field Offices implement many of the Conservation Measures of the Farm Bill at the local level.

The Renton Field Office primarily helps livestock, crop and forestry landowners develop conservation plans and provide technical and financial assistance to those who wish to voluntarily implement conservation practices that help protect our natural resources as well as maintain working lands. Sign up for all NRCS Programs is ongoing and specific information can be obtained from the NRCS WA Website (http://www.nrcs.usda.gov/wps/portal/nrcs/site/wa/home/)

NRCS supports the efforts of the King Conservation District, providing training and assistance as needed to District personnel. The NRCS also develops the practice standards used by District personnel to create and implement natural resource management projects and farm plans.
