Mountain Castles Soil and Water Conservation District

Mountain Castles SWCD was formed in 1987 to serve Craig and Botetourt Counties.  It’s named for the county seats, New Castle and Fincastle, and the beautiful surrounding mountains. Mountain Castles SWCD is a political subdivision of the Commonwealth of Virginia. It is run by a board of elected officials.

We provide two-way communication between citizens and government. Focusing our attention on nonpoint source pollution (NPS) issues, we develop programs to solve natural resource problems. We work directly with landowners to provide technical assistance and provide cost-share assistance for Best Management Practices (BMP’s). We also provide environmental education opportunities in the local schools and in the community.
