New Hanover Soil & Water Conservation District

The New Hanover Soil and Water Conservation District (NHSWCD) mission is to protect and enhance water quality throughout New Hanover County through land conservation, stormwater management, technical support to citizens and organizations, and conservation education and outreach activities.

To achieve this mission, NHSWCD has contract relationships with New Hanover County, the City of Wilmington, the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (NCDA&CS) Division of Soil and Water Conservation, and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS).

These partnerships enable NHSWCD to deliver federal and state cost share money and professional technical assistance to New Hanover County citizens. NHSWCD will extend partnerships to anyone interested in promoting conservation practices in the county. Examples of partnerships include reaching out to the Wilmington-Cape Fear Home Builders Association and Wilmington Regional Board of REALTORS© to originate the Stewardship Development Awards Program.
