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.

Puget Sound Conservation Districts Sign Unprecedented Agreement to Work Together
In March 2013, the twelve conservation districts that form the Puget Sound Conservation Districts Caucus signed an Interlocal Agreement that paves the way for extensive collaboration. This agreement allows the member CDs to share financial resources, technical expertise, and staff as needed to address regional issues and needs.
“We’re really excited to have this tool,” says King Conservation District Senior Program Manager Brandy Reed. “Puget Sound touches all of us so working together to save this important resource just makes sense.” Reed provides staff support to the Caucus in addition to managing a variety of programs within the King Conservation District.
While the twelve Puget Sound CDs have collaborated for years, the ILA represents a critical step forward in implementing conservation strategies on privately-held lands in the region. Says Reed, “Conservation Districts have a mandate to think and behave regionally – enabling the twelve Puget Sound CDs to partner and expand our focus across county lines means we can leverage each other’s resources, expertise, and strengths across all of Puget Sound.”
