Blaine County Soil Conservation District
Across the United States, nearly 3000 conservation districts -- almost one in every county -- are helping local people to conserve land, water, forests, wildlife and related natural resources.
Our mission: to coordinate assistance from all available sources -- public and private, local, state and federal -- in an effort to develop locally driven solutions to natural resource concerns.
Among other things, Blaine Soil Conservation District helps support and
- Implement federal and state farm conservation practices and programs to help local farmers and ranchers with best management practices.
- Conserve and restore wetlands, which purify water and provide habitat for birds, fish and numerous other animals.
- Protect groundwater resources; and water quality.
- Plant trees and other land cover to hold soil in place, clean the air, provide cover for wildlife and beautify neighborhoods.
- Developers and homeowners manage the land in an environmentally sensitive manner; and
- Reach out to communities and schools to teach the value of natural resources and encourage conservation efforts.
