While its primary focus has been agricultural lands, its many technical contributions to soil mapping and classification and to water quality improvement is well known.

Workshops conducted this month by the NaturalResourcesConservationService and Bat Conservation International showed ranchers how to build and install devices that keep bats, birds, and other wildlife from getting trapped in water troughs.
