Welcome to the York Soil & Water Conservation District site. Our mission is to promote the wise and responsible use of natural resources for the benefit of all citizens of York County through education, demonstration projects and technical services.

The Conservation District brings together all available technical, financial and education resources and coordinates them so that they meet the needs of the local land user for conservation of soil, water and related natural resources.

The Conservation District is a subdivision of state government in partnership with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources and the USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service.

The York Soil & Water Conservation District has been serving York County landowners for over 60 years. Learn more about our programs through our most recent newsletters.

The next monthly meeting of the Conservation District Board of Commissioners will be held February 9th, 2022 at the Black's Peaches, York.
