History

PURPOSE

Soil and Water Conservation Districts are local units of government that manage and direct natural resource management programs at the local level.

WHAT WE DO

Indiana has 92 Districts – one for each county. They work closely with other forms of local, regional, and state government, private nonprofits, and educational institutions to provide a high level of conservation service to private landowners. They work to promote the wise use, development, and conservation of our state’s soil, water, and related resources in ways that are relevant to their region.

"Father of Soil Conservation"

“From every conceivable angle—economic, social, cultural, public health, national defense—conservation of natural resources is an objective on which all should agree.”

-Hugh Hammond Bennett
