Please note that on or around August 1, 2011, USDA/NRCS will be reducing its computer support to our office.  As a result, our e-mail access will be limited.  During this time, there may be delays in responding to your e-mail inquiries.  Thank you for your patience as we work to resolve these issues as quickly as possible.

WHO WE ARE                                                         The Baltimore County Soil Conservation District is a political subdivision of the state of Maryland.  We work with Federal, State and local authorities and the private sector to address Baltimore County's soil and water conservation needs. 

The District is a self-governing body, administered by a Board of Supervisors.  The Supervisors are private citizens who are aware of the local environmental problems.  They are appointed (one appointed by the County; one by the Cooperative Extension Service; one by Farm Bureau and two at-large) to serve in unpaid positions.   

District operations are directed by the Board and carried out by the staff. 

Grants from the state and county and proceeds from special District programs account for the District's income.  The District is audited by a licensed CPA on a regular basis.

We are working hard at conserving our natural resources and the quality of life for you and your family. With your assistance, we could do an even better job. If you are a farmer or landowner, become a cooperator with the Baltimore County Soil Conservation District.

Remember, we are not a regulatory agency. The aim of  the Maryland soil conservation districts is to enhance farming operations while helping to conserve our valuable soil and clean water. We can also assist you in finding financial help to install best management practices that protect water quality.






OUR MISSION                                                       The mission of the Baltimore County Soil Conservation District is to promote practical and effective soil, water and related natural resource programs to all citizens in a timely fashion on a voluntary basis through leadership, education and cooperation.
