Conservation Videos Give Quick Glimpse into Assistance Available

DAVIS, Calif., Dec. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service in California is releasing eight short videos on YouTube, providing a quick glimpse into some of the Agency's most popular conservation opportunities (

In four minutes or less viewers can meet a California farmer or rancher who is working with the Agency to solve a conservation dilemma, meet the conservationist who assists, and watch the process they use to craft a solution. The videos follow a brief conservation planning journey for the following situations:

  • Conservation Planning
  • Managing/Monitoring Irrigation Water (2 videos)
  • Improving Forest Stands
  • Managing for Livestock and Wildlife on Rangeland
  • Building Hedgerows for Pollinators and other Benefits
  • Decommissioning a Well
  • Managing Nutrients (wastewater) on Dairies

"It gives you a better understanding and sense of familiarity to view the conservation process through the eyes of a real farmer or rancher who is trying to solve a practical problem," says State Conservationist Ed Burton. "YouTube is a powerful medium and it's time the conservation work done by farmers and ranchers takes its place there."

If the video piques a viewer's interest in pursuing a conservation solution, they are encouraged to seek the services of a professional conservationist available in one of the Agency's 55 California offices. Locations can be found at
