St. John Valley Soil & Water Conservation District

to provide local land users, landowners, and other individuals and organizations with the information, education, and technical assistance they need to help protect and  enhance Maine’s natural resources and to use them wisely.

The St. John Valley has a variety of natural resources.  Its rich floodplain soils support numerous agricultural enterprises, its forests provide countless products for use by people worldwide, and, in addition, provide much needed habitat for a variety of wildlife species, and its rural character is home to thousands of people who enjoy the lifestyle that is northern New England. 

In following with these resources, what comes next is an analysis of the five major land uses within the region:  agriculture, forestry, recreation, fish and wildlife, and water.  Each land use is further broken down into several sub-issues, each defined by its primary concern(s) and potential solution(s).  In addition, since education is an important aspect in all that we do, we have listed it as its own separate entity.
