Walthall County SWCD

The Walthall County Soil and Water Conservation District is a subdivision of state government that is responsible for conserving natural resources within the county. The district, along with nearly 3,000 conservation districts nationwide, provides assistance to its citizens through cooperation with federal, state and local agencies, businesses and civic organizations. 

The district's goal is to help people in the wise management of land and natural resources by offering technical assistance and information.  The conservation district governing board is comprised of local citizens who volunteer to represent farmers, landowners, educators, businesses, land users and all citizens, young and old, in the district. The board ensures a local voice in natural resource issues. 

District activities include technical field assistance, urban development projects, environmental education and information programs and recognition programs to acknowledge people who practice land stewardship, along with a variety of other services.
