Get Involved with Locally Led Conservation Efforts

The local­ly led con­ser­va­tion effort is the foun­da­tion of the Nat­ur­al Resources Con­ser­va­tion Ser­vice’s con­ser­va­tion pro­gram deliv­ery process. Through local input, such as the Local Work Group (LWG), the Nat­ur­al Resources Con­ser­va­tion Ser­vice (NRCS) gath­ers rec­om­men­da­tions on local nat­ur­al resource pri­or­i­ties.

These dis­cus­sions will help direct the Unit­ed States Depart­ment of Agri­cul­ture (USDA) con­ser­va­tion activ­i­ties and pro­grams that will coor­di­nate with oth­er Fed­er­al, State, and Trib­al and local con­ser­va­tion pro­grams. This will help pro­vide a coor­di­nat­ed effort to address con­ser­va­tion con­cerns spe­cif­ic to a local area.
