Conservation Stewardship Sign Up Underway At NRCS Offices

The Natural Resources Conservation Service is taking application sign up under the Conservation Stewardship Program from now until January 17.  South Dakota NRCS C-S-P Coordinator Jessica Michalski says what makes the C-S-P program so popular is it’s a working lands program.

Michalski says C-S-P is the most popular conservation program in South Dakota and last year 935,000 acres were enrolled in the state.  She says there are many benefits coming from C-S-P including soil, water and air quality.

Landowners interested in enrolling in the program should stop by their local NRCS office and fill out an application.
