NRCS Surveying Project (Service Points)
The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) will be providing an opportunity to brush up on your surveying skills while gaining service points for seminar. NRCS will be surveying farmland in here in Utah County. They will provide training for everyone who volunteers. The group will survey once a week for 4 weeks, with a time commitment varying from 2-5 hours (including travel time). The days could be either a Wednesday or Saturday depending on people’s schedules. Please sign up in the CE office and distinguish whether Wednesday or Saturday is preferable.

Please sign up in the CE office and note if you would be available to drive to Pleasant Grove.
