NRCS Programs

Natural Resources Conservation Service

The NRCS is a division of the United State Department of Agriculture. 

The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in the Longmont Field Office has a focus on irrigation water management, soil erosion reduction, forest stand improvement, organic food production, and wildlife habitat development.  The agency staff is available on a first come first serve basis for evaluation of natural resource concerns.  During a field visit, agency personnel evaluate the property and propose methods of improvement for the natural resource concerns identified.  If the property owner is interested in pursuing these improvements then a plan is written to spell out the steps and methods of improvement.

 

Incentive funds are available through the Environmental Quality Incentive Program (EQIP) for a variety of conservation practices.  The Wetland Reserve Program focuses on restoration of wetlands and the Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program on the improvement of wildlife habitat on private property.  The NRCS Staff also work with landowners on a technical basis without cost to address natural resource concerns. 

 

The USDA – NRCS website provides more detail on the programs that are available.
