Information for Homeowners, Urban and Suburban Land Users
It's not only farmers and ranchers who benefit from Natural Resources
Conservation Service (NRCS)' expertise, people in suburban and urban areas do,
too. We work with homeowners, business people, and local governments to prevent
soil erosion, keep water clean and plentiful, create and preserve green spaces,
and reduce the impacts of floods. And when communities and individuals need to
meet State and local requirements for natural resources quality and management,
we have the knowledge and experience to help them, as well.
