Garrett Soil Conservation District

Mission
To implement conservation programs and initiatives within Garrett County to protect and improve our soil, water, and related natural resources through local involvement and decision making.

To take technical, financial, and education resources, whatever their source, and focus or coordinate them so that they meet the needs of the local land manager with conservation of soil, water, and related natural resources.

The Garrett Soil Conservation District was created in 1943, under provisions of the Maryland Soil Conservation Districts Law, to involve local citizens in conservation planning and erosion and sediment control programs. The District functions independently under a five-member Board of Supervisors. As a political subdivision of state government, the District exercises public powers and receives guidance and assistance from the State Soil Conservation Committee. Although we have the same boundaries as Garrett County, we are not part of county government. Our staff and operating budgets are funded through a combination of federal, state, and local assistance. It is this unique three-way partnership that enables us to carry out our mission.
