Virginia Dare Soil and Water Conservation District

Our Mission is to provide leadership in the conservation of soil, water, and related natural resources in Chesapeake and Virginia Beach.

Our Vision is to ensure future generations with clean water, fresh air, productive soils, and sustainable related resources.

The Virginia Dare Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) is one of 47 districts in Virginia. Districts are subdivisions of state government which coordinate local natural resource protection programs (section 10.1-50 of the code of VA, 1950, as amended). A board of Directors consists of four elected and two appointed members to govern the district. The Virginia Dare SWCD provides local leadership in conservation of soil, water, and related natural resources in the cities of Virginia Beach and Chesapeake. Some programs available through the district include: cost-share assistance to agricultural producers who install conservation practices on their farms as well as a wide variety of educational programs that cater to school children and local organizations.
