SWCD Welcomes Kris Green to Conservation Staff
The Kosciusko NRCS/SWCD partnership team is pleased to welcome Kris Green as the new Soil Conservationist in the Warsaw field office. Kris started in December of 2017 and he will be working with landowners administering Farm Bill programs. We recently asked Kris to share a little about himself.
” I am originally from Muncie, IN, and spent 12 years growing up in sunny Bradenton, FL. I returned to attend Ball State for my undergraduate degree in the NREM department, majoring in environmental management, with a concentration in soil and water quality. I graduated with my B.S. in 2015. Currently, I am finishing my M.S. degree through Ball State in soil science. My research involves studying the effects of cover crops and gated tile drainage on subsurface macro-nutrient movement. Outside of college, I have worked in my family’s excavation business implementing various agricultural NRCS design plans. I currently reside in Dunkirk, IN, with my wife, Amanda. We live on a farm with 4 dogs and a barn full of chickens. My hobbies include hunting, kayaking, snowmobiling, competition shooting, and hiking.”
