Natural resources group seeks new volunteers

BANGOR – The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service in Maine is looking for new members to join the state’s group of Earth Team volunteers.

“Volunteers – The Heart of America” is the theme for NRCS National Volunteer Week, April 21-27, as the Maine NRCS tries to attract more volunteers to Maine’s Earth Team.

The Earth Team is the contingent of volunteers who assist NRCS in its mission of helping people conserve, improve and sustain natural resources and the environment.

Last year, 421 volunteers provided approximately 15,000 hours in support of local soil and water conservation issues in Maine.

Any person at least 14 years of age may join the Earth Team.

For more information, contact local NRCS offices, or call 1-888-LANDCARE.
