Jacob Johnson grew up in Milnor, ND and graduated high school in 2013. After high school he continued his education at Valley City State University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Fisheries and Wildlife Science in December 2017.
Jacob started his federal career in 2014 working for the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service as a summer employee. That was the same year that he learned about NRCS when his neighbor introduced him to the field office staff in Forman, ND. He then decided to apply for the pathways internship and was able to intern his first summer in Forman and the following summer in Napoleon, ND. After graduation Jacob accepted my first full time position with NRCS as a soil conservationist in Fessenden, ND. After working there for two years he decided it was time to move on in order to gain more experience. He ended up moving to Perham, MN and worked there for 10 months. During that time, he learned that there was a job opening for Forman and was excited for the opportunity to return to my home county.
Jacob is an avid outdoorsman and spends his free time hunting and trapping. He started trapping nuisance pocket gophers in my neighbor’s alfalfa fields before he was old enough to drive, and since then have expanded to trapping nearly every furbearer that ND has to offer. Jacob looks forward to continuing his career with NRCS in Forman and working with landowners and producers by promoting conservation practices.
It is the goal of the Wild Rice Soil Conservation District to educate and help the local land users (for conservation of soil) right here in Sargent County. We do this by offering a variety of services and making available various technical, financial, and educational resources.
