USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service
Jane Hardisty has served as the State Conservationist of the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Indiana for the past 14 years. In this position, she oversees the agency’s technical assistance and programs available to agricultural landowners and urban residents that help protect the environment and conserve our natural resources through voluntary, private lands conservation.
About the NRCS
NRCS employees work in every county in Indiana. District conservationists, resource conservationists, wetland conservationists, soil conservationists, soil conservation technicians, engineers, biologists, agronomists, and soil scientists work hand-in-hand with land users to conserve natural resources on private lands.
NRCS succeeds through its partnerships, working closely with individual farmers and ranchers, landowners, local conservation districts, government agencies, Tribes, Earth Team volunteers and many other people and groups that care about the quality of America’s natural resources. Partnerships allow our agency to expand the reach and depth of conservation.
Individually the groups that comprise our conservation partnerships have a diversity of expertise in discipline, location/area, and focus. As partners in conservation, these groups share their unique areas of expertise and conservation work to put more conservation on the land.
