Strafford County Conservation District

to conserve and sustain the natural resources through management, landowner assistance and educational outreach.

The Conservation District offers many services to the residents of Strafford County:

  • Soil Potential Index calculations, for current use tax assessments.
  • Access to unique historic aerial photos of Strafford County.
  • Low-cost specialty farm equipment rentals: We have farm equipment available that can help to improve soil health and productivity, while reducing nutrient runoff. There is a small rental fee to cover equipment maintenance costs.
  • Technical assistance for soil health, nutrient management, water quality, wildlife habitat, and more. SCCD staff can provide guidance on many natural resources issues ranging from agricultural to ecological, and help you find financial assistance opportunities to implement conservation practices.
  • Grant research and implementation for local conservation projects. SCCD is always exploring new opportunities to implement conservation projects such as creating habitat for threatened wildlife, protecting clean water, stabilizing eroding soils, and more. We often work with other organizations like conservation commissions, schools, boy scout and girl scout troops, state and federal agencies, and others.
  • Stewardship of conservation easements. Thanks to partnerships between private landowners, other organizations, and SCCD, 1,800 acres of land in Strafford County will be protected from development forever.
  • Workshops, demonstrations, education and outreach. A part of our mission is to arm citizens with knowledge of conservation issues and opportunities so that together we can manage Strafford County’s natural resources wisely.
