The Burlington Field Office, located in the USDA Service Center on Camp Ernst Road has a new phone system. The current phone number 859.586.7903 it still valid, but when you dial 859.586.7903 you will hear a recorded message provided by the USDA. To reach the Natural Resource Conservation Service and the Boone and Kenton County Conservation Districts, select option 3. You will be able to speak with someone or leave a message in their voice mail box if they are unavailable. As always, there are a few glitches in the new system.
