Cumberland County Soil & Water Conservation District

The Cumberland County SWCD is a recognized and respected leader in natural resource conservation.

The District was established in 1946 as part of a nationwide response to the Dust Bowl. As Cumberland County’s land uses have changed over time, the District has worked to meet the soil and water conservation needs of both its rural and urban landscapes.

Today, the District focuses on educational programs and technical services that address the region’s soil and water conservation needs, including stormwater, agriculture, soil health, watershed management, and invasive species.

The District is governed by a Board of Supervisors. The Board is comprised of five Supervisors and additional Associate Supervisors who meet on the third Wednesday of each month. These volunteers identify conservation priorities and opportunities.
