Oxford County Soil & Water Conservation District

The Oxford County Soil & Water Conservation District (OCSWCD) is one of 16 districts in Maine that help people conserve land, water, and forests. While each district has different focuses, we are united by a single goal: to assist locally-led conservation. We work with local stakeholders to identify local natural resource conservation problems, develop solutions, and assist in applying the solutions to the land.

Besides local people, we work with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), and other state and federal agencies. We are funded by state and county sources, private donations, and state and federal grants, and are governed by a volunteer Board of Supervisors. While we are a state agency, we operate more like a non-profit organization and we do not enforce any regulations.
