Disabled East Tennessee Outdoorsman Is Model for Successful Conservation Planning

 

Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS)Nashville, TN – Disabled veteran and outdoorsman Jason Seaton of East Tennessee dreamed of hearing the distinctive call of bob white quail on his farm again. He ordered trees from the Sevier County Soil Conservation District back in 2008, but they didn’t survive due the drought.

Not one to give up, Seaton and his mother, Beverly, went to the Sevierville Field Office and met with Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Soil Conservationist Mitchell Aman, who helped him develop a comprehensive conservation plan. Seaton then applied for and was funded through NRCS Environmental Quality Incentives Program.
