Making Conservation Work For You
Hancock County Soil and Water Conservation District provides local
conservation leadership, teaches the value of natural resources,
encourages conservation efforts, and helps to plan and implement
voluntary programs. Each District program is different and unique to the
area that it services, because the programs are developed by local
people to solve local problems.

Hancock County Annual
Lakes Survey Week for Invasive Aquatic Plants
Join us for the 11th Annual Lakes Survey Week! Volunteers pick a public
boat launch or a hand-carried access point on a Hancock County lake of their
choice to perform an aquatic plant survey. Training, survey forms, and
most field equipment (including underwater view scopes) are provided and surveys
take approximately 1 hour to complete. Early detection is crucial to
protecting our lakes and ponds! To sign up for a lake or pond please
contact the District at 667-8663 or email me at:
