Talbot Soil Conservation District

The Talbot Soil Conservation District has been assisting farmers, landowners and others in solving natural resources problems since 1958. The District takes its role in conserving natural resources very seriously. With over 600 miles of shoreline on the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries, we know that what we do on the land has an immediate and significant affect on the water quality of the Bay. This commitment to conservation is shared by our farmers and landowners who have year after year demonstrated outstanding stewardship in their willingness to apply high level of Best Management Practice implementation.
The District also plays a role in the prevention of erosion and sediment delivery for construction development activity. The District reviews the sediment and erosion control plans required by state law for these activities to ensure that they are complete and adequate.
The District is unique among agencies in that it is a unit of government in itself. The District is governed by a board of appointed supervisors who set local priorities and policies. In it's operation, the District works with its cooperators on a voluntary basis to solve natural resource problems and to apply conservation on the land. The District is staffed with Federal (USDA/NRCS), State (MDA/Office of Resource Conservation) and District (grant) employees.
