Perry Soil and Water Conservation District

To increase public awareness and provide technical assistance in conserving our soil, water, and other natural resources.

About Us:
Perry County is in the southeastern part of Ohio. The total area is 262,080 acres or 410 square miles. The estimated population is 35,246 (2005). Perry County was founded on December 26, 1817 and was the 55th county to be formed in Ohio. It was named for Oliver Hazard Perry, a hero of the War of 1812. New Lexington is the county seat.

The Perry SWCD was organized in June of 1944 and was the 29th district to form in Ohio. The District operates on funds received from the Perry County Commissioners and matching dollars from the State of Ohio.

Perry SWCD works with citizens of Perry County and local and state agencies to promote good stewardship practices. By increasing public awareness of these practices and providing technical assistance, the soil, water, and other natural resources should be around for future generations.
