Conservation Districts are made up of volunteers committed to the conservation movement. The focus and set-up of a Conservation District varies by county depending on the needs of each county. However, encouraging farm conservation planning and proper management of soil and water resources remains the backbone of the District’s programs. Today, however, an awareness of increasing environmental problems has expanded the District’s programs to include conservation education in schools, urban and rural erosion and sedimentation control programs, and nonpoint source pollution programs. The District Board continues to direct the local program and emphasize conservation education and water quality issues.
The Warren County Conservation District (WCCD) was established in 1948 to address local conservation issues. The WCCD maintains a website explaining our programs and includes links to necessary forms. Information available includes but is not limited to the following: Educational program information including applications for camps; Dirt, Gravel, & Low Volume Road Program applications; Garden Plot information, and a variety of useful information. The site is updated throughout the year with all of the latest information and forms. We have realized savings with postage, time, and paper in all of our programs.
