WHAT IS A CONSERVATION DISTRICT?

A Conservation District is a legal subdivision of state government,
responsible under state law for conservation work within its boundaries.  
The boundaries in Pennsylvania are along county lines.  The purposes
of conservation districts are:

To focus attention on land, water, and related resource problems.

To develop programs to solve such problems.

To enlist and coordinate assistance from all public and private sources
that can contribute to accomplishing the district goals.

To make all citizens aware of the interrelationship between human
activities and the natural environment.
