Who We Are, What We Do
The District operates in partnership with the Natural Resources conservation Service (NRCS), getting technical assistance to install conservation practices from the NRCS District Conservationist. A Board of Supervisors, who volunteer their time, set the overall priorities and direction for the District each year.
The local Soil and Water Conservation District plays a key role in the delivery of NRCS programs in Alabama. We share a common mission through these programs to assist clients that are protecting the natural resources of your county.
In addition, we hold two educational events each year for county area students. In February each year, alongside with Alabama Arbor Week, the District hosts the Urban Forestry and Conservation Fair for 5th grade students. Students learn about trees, tree anatomy, urban environments and so much more.
The annual Water Festival, typically held in the late spring, is hosted at a local college where the District brings in 4th grade students to learn about the Water Cycle, where our water comes from and how and why it is important that we can keep it clean. Contact us if you would like more information about these events, how you can assist, and how to volunteer!
