What is a Conservation District?

 

Conservation Districts are subdivisions of state government that work to address natural resource concerns. The Lancaster Soil and Water Conservation District is committed to improving the quality of life for the citizens of Lancaster County.  

The Lancaster Soil and Water Conservation District consists of a board of five commissioners- three elected in the general election and two appointed by the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources. These commissioners volunteer their time, talents, and services to help improve natural resource awareness.

For over sixty years, the Lancaster Soil and Water Conservation District is here to serve YOU!  Our conservation district is working for you and your community to promote wise use of our natural resources.

We have a partnership with USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service and SC Department of Natural Resources.
