Starke County Soil and Water Conservation District

The supervisors of the Starke County SWCD are responsible for providing leadership in the conservation and development of soil, water and related resources within the district's boundaries. The major purpose of the district is to analyze needs and develop and carry out both short and long range programs aimed at solving resource problems, primarily dealing with soil and water resources. The ultimate district objective is to cause soil and water conservation practices and systems to be implemented upon the land.

The district supervisors and staff work with both rural and urban dwelling landowners or occupiers, groups, local agencies and others to prevent resource problems, correct existing soil and water conservation problems and help utilize the county's natural resource capabilities. Through the district, local people are also better able to organize and coordinate their efforts in obtaining technical and financial assistance from state and federal agencies with responsibilities and expertise in natural resource use and development.
