Snyder County Conservation District

A conservation district is a subdivision of state government that follows county lines as boundaries. Funding for the conservation district's programs is obtained from the Snyder County Commissioners, PA Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and other agencies. The Snyder County Conservation District (SCCD) was founded in 1956.

A partial list of what we are involved with includes:

  • Worksite Erosion Prevention (Erosion and Sedimentation)
  • Agricultural Nutrient Management (e.g.: Act 38)
  • Agricultural Conservation Assistance
  • Improving Dirt & Gravel Roads
  • Watershed Protection & Organizations
  • Agricultural Land Preservation
  • Conservation Education & Promotion
  • Other Services (e.g.: tree seedling sales, topographic map sales)

The Snyder County Conservation District (SCCD) is governed by a seven member board of volunteer directors. The Board of Directors meet monthly to plan and direct local conservation issues. To accomplish their goals and objectives, the board relies on their staff, paid employs of the Conservation District, and cooperating agencies such as the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), PA State Conservation Commission (SCC) PA Game Commission, PA Fish & Boat Commission, PA Bureau of Forestry, Farm Service Agency, Penn State Cooperative Extension, among others.
