The Chief of USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service is Dave White. Dave was our lunch speaker during the 2012 Conservation in Action Tour. He also participated in the tour and talked about NRCS’ voluntary, incentive-based conservation work with private landowners.
I recorded Dave’s remarks for you and also interviewed him at the end of our lunch. He said there are three trends in government right now which are less money; fewer people but the same amount of work. These will compound the challenges for conservation programs and are why he’s enthused about partnership programs.
