Harrison County Soil and Water Conservation District

The mission of the Harrison Soil & Water Conservation District is to promote stewardship by providing educational and technical assistance to cooperators for the conservation of our natural resources.

The Harrison SWCD was organized in 1945 and consists of all the land within Harrison County. The District is governed by 5 duly elected supervisors who serve staggered 3 year terms. Harrison SWCD Board of Supervisors holds public meetings each month to discuss natural resources priorities. The Harrison SWCD office is located in the Harrison County Government Center in Cadiz, Ohio.

The District works cooperatively with other county agencies, local officials, and other conservation organizations to increase the appreciation of our county's valuable natural resources.

Funding is obtained through generous support of the Harrison County Commissioners, the Harrison County Auditor, the State of Ohio,  grants, and donations. The funding provided through these groups allows us to provide many  services free of charge or at a reduced cost to residents and landowners in Harrison County.
