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.
