Ohio Federation of Soil and Water Conservation Districts (OFSWCD)

Mission
Provide leadership and support to the board supervisors, soil and water conservation districts, and their partners through grassroots programs that promote natural resource stewardship.

In 1943, the Ohio Federation of Soil and Water Conservation Districts was established to serve as a coordinating organization and sounding board for the county soil and water conservation districts (SWCDs) to develop an understanding of the roles and responsibilities of the local board members. Today, the OFSWCD continues to provide strong support and assistance to Ohio ’s 88 SWCDs, fostering positive communication and cooperation between the districts, and serving an active leadership role in promoting soil and water conservation.

Each county SWCD is governed by a board of five locally elected officials, who are familiar with the county’s resource needs and can deliver a tailor-made conservation program. Therefore, the OFSWCD organization actively involves all board members from each of the 88 counties, thereby totaling 440 supervisors. The OFSWCD is led by four officers including the OFSWCD Past President and a board of directors composed of five supervisors from each of the given areas of the state. The officers and directors serve two year terms.
