Conservation Office of the Future on Display this Week at the CARCD/RC&D Annual Meeting

For more than 70 years, NRCS has delivered conservation assistance to farmers, ranchers and other landowners. Now they are taking "conservation delivery" to a whole new level using kiosks in business locations and mobile field offices that can drive the full range of technical services right up to a customer’s farm or ranch. The kiosk and a fully equipped mobile office are on display this week at the annual conference of California's Association of Resource Conservation Districts (CARCD) and Resource Conservation and Development (RC&D) Councils at the Riverside Convention Center.
