The mission of the South Dakota conservation partnership is to provide leadership and administer programs to help people conserve, improve, and sustain our natural resources and environment.
The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service is the lead federal conservation agency on private lands. We provide technical assistance on to people on a voluntary basis for the wise use and conservation of our valuable natural resources. The Earth Team volunteer Program is the volunteer arm of the Natural Resources Conservation Service. Earth Team volunteers work side-by-side with conservation professionals to help people conserve, improve, and sustain our natural resources and environment.
