Our Mission

To preserve and improve soil and water quality for the entire county through education and implementation of conservation practices.

Working in a unique cooperative partnership with the United States Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service, which provides technical expertise, and state and local partners, Soil and Water Conservation Districts reach out to all local stakeholders in the community to determine priorities and set a course of action to solve natural resource problems.

Districts provide local conservation leadership, teach the value of natural resources, encourage conservation efforts and help plan and implement voluntary programs. Each District program is different and unique to the area that it serves, because the programs are developed by local people to solve local problems.
