The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is the primary federal agency that works with private landowners to protect natural resources.  In Virginia, NRCS works closely with 47 soil and water conservation districts and several state agencies to provide farmers and other landowners with technical expertise to meet their specific economic and environmental objectives. NRCS also provides financial assistance through several Farm Bill programs, which offer incentives to reduce erosion, improve air and water quality, preserve wetlands, enhance wildlife habitat, and protect farmland and grazing land from urban development.
