TEMPLE -- The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service is celebrating National Volunteer Week April 21-27 by thanking and honoring its Earth Team volunteers for their service to conservation.

Earth Team is the agency’s volunteer work force, and nationally, in fiscal year 2012, more than 19,000 people donated 305,564 hours of service to the Natural Resources Conservation Service worth approximately $6.7 million.

State Conservationist Salvador Salinas said Earth Team volunteers are making an environmental impact in Texas. Last year 130 volunteers donated 7,340 hours. “That’s worth $159,938 of benefit to our customers and the taxpayers,” Salinas said. “These are impressive numbers, and we are grateful for the help, but we also recognize much more conservation work needs to be done.”

Earth Team is a program that partners volunteers with Natural Resources Conservation Service employees. It was created in 1985 and offers many opportunities to individuals older than 14 who are interested in volunteering to improve the nation’s natural resources. Earth Team volunteers help conservationists provide private landowners and others a range of services from conservation technical assistance to teaching and generating awareness about conservation through the use of community projects.

Salinas said he hopes National Volunteer Week will motivate others to volunteer to help the Natural Resources Conservation Service with its conservation mission.
