Matt Wallace

Matt Wallace offered this description of his current job after his graduation from UNCG. ” Since earning my degree in Envrionmental Studies from UNCG, I have been working in Moore County, NC for the Natural Resources Conservation Service, a branch of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. We offer technical and financial support to a variety of farmers, producers, and foresters for implementating the most innovative and efficient methods of conservation. As a Technical Conservationist, my job is to see that they carry out their agreed upon plans by surveying their properties and evaluating their techniques to see that they meet our standards.The work is rewarding because I get to see firsthand how these practices help preserve our natural resources, and I also get to see the faces of the farmers that receive a bit of fiscal relief for implementing the Conservation Plans.”
