The Baltimore County Soil Conservation District, established in 1944, is one of 24 districts in Maryland that provide technical assistance and advice to landowners and operators in managing and protecting their land and water resources.
We work with Federal, State and local authorities and the private sector to address Baltimore County's soil and water conservation needs.
The District is a self-governing body, administered by a Board of Supervisors. These supervisors are private citizens who are aware of the local environmental issues. They are appointed to serve in unpaid positions to provide overall supervision and set policy for the local conservation district.
District operations are directed by the Board and carried out by District staff.
Grants from the state and county and proceeds from special District programs account for the District's income. The District is audited by a licensed CPA on a regular basis.
The District boundaries are the same as the county boundaries.
