WCSW Interns Join the NRCS Earth Team

This summer, our Community Conservation Corps program has created a unique opportunity to enhance our partnership with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) through shared training and volunteer work. WCSW interns participated in a learning session with NRCS District Conservationist Brittany Hummel and dairy farmer Sue Hunter to learn about nutrient management and the NRCS’ role in helping farmers. They also had an opportunity to assist with soil sampling after training with Megan Facciolo, NRCS Soil Conservationist, after which they completed soil sampling on their own at two other farms.
