If you have been in our office in the past week, you may have noticed a new face wandering around. That would be Jacob Johnson, the EOT Field Office's new soil conservationist! We'll let Jacob introduce himself here, and be sure to welcome him to our county!
"Hi, my name is Jacob Johnson. I grew up in Milnor, North Dakota and graduated high school in 2013. After high school I continued my education at Valley City State University, where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Fisheries and Wildlife Science in December 2017.
I started my federal career in 2014 working for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as a summer employee. The following summer I was hired by the NRCS as a pathways intern in the Forman Field Office. The following summer I got to continue my internship at the Napoleon Field Office. After graduation I accepted my first full time position with NRCS in Fessenden, ND in January of 2017.
I'm an avid outdoorsman and spend my free time hunting and trapping. I started trapping nuisance pocket gophers in my neighbor's alfalfa fields before I was old enough to drive, and since then have expanded to trapping nearly every furbearer that ND has to offer. I look forward to continueing my career with NRCS in Minnesota and working with landowners and producers by promoting conservation practices."
