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.
The District is now hiring an AmeriCorps member for this summer!
