St Mary's Soil Conservation District

mission 
to promote practical and effective soil, water, and related natural resource programs and to provide assistance to all citizens on a voluntary basis through leadership, education, and cooperation.

We perform a range of conservation activities aimed at keeping the soil productive and our waterways clean and healthy. A typical soil conservation district office includes a manager, district conservationist, engineers, agricultural planners, technicians, soil scientist, urban reviewers and administrative staff. These professionals work with landowners to enhance farming operations, prevent flooding, safeguard streams and reservoirs, foster wildlife habitat, manage forest resources and address natural resource impacts from urban growth. Helping farmers install best management practices on their farms to protect soil and water resources and comply with environmental laws is a top priority. Districts also work with small horse farms and other livestock operations to help them manage manure more efficiently and improve pasture health. In addition, districts provide landowners and developers with information on soils and other natural resources, while assisting local governments with stormwater management and sediment and erosion control plans required by Maryland law
