Duval Soil and Water Conservation District

The Duval Soil and Water Conservation District is a subdivision of the State of Florida and was organized by landowners in Duval County, Florida. The creation of this district was authorized by the Soil and Water Conservation Law, Chapter 582, Florida Statutes, enacted by the Florida Legislature in 1937.

The Duval District was organized in 1953 to assist the local landowners and land users in making the best use of the local soil and water resources; to encourage a more positive attitude towards agriculturally related activities; and to stimulate more prosperous and lasting agricultural enterprises. The mission of the District is to plan and implement programs, projects and practices that will serve to promote the conservation of the natural resources in Duval County, Florida.

The District is administered by five non-salaried, locally elected, public officials who serve as supervisors. To view a list of our current board of supervisors, click here.

Regular board meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month at 10:00 A.M. in the Duval County Agricultural Center, located at 1010 N. McDuff Avenue, Jacksonville, Florida, unless otherwise posted. All meetings are open to the public.

The District provides assistance to Urban and Rural landowners, land users, land planners, engineers, groups, and organizations and other concerned citizens in the planning and implementation of practices, programs, projects and other activities that serve to promote the conservation (Wise Use) of the local natural resources, in Duval County, Florida.
