  • I participated on a Research project of alternative bio-fuels and also testing seeds:  germination, lifespan, reproduction.  The skills I obtained on the job were critical to my possible future with the NRCS.  The time I spent in the field really helped me get a feel for what kind of work the NRCS does.  David Johnson.  Internship with NRCS Kika De La Garza Plant Materials Center
