The Earth Team is NRCS’ volunteer workforce that is making a difference in every county in the nation. NRCS works with private landowners to improve soil quality, conserve water, improve air quality and enhance wildlife habitat. Earth Team volunteers work side-by-side with conservation professionals and are an integral part of the conservation partnership.


Earth Team offers many opportunities for people who are interested in volunteering to improve the nation’s natural resources. People who are 14 years of age and older can volunteer. Volunteers can work part-time or full-time, work outdoors or inside a local NRCS office, individually or as a group.

Download and fill out the Earth Team application if interested. Please email the application or bring by the District office.
