Diane Turner, Conservation Technician and Outreach Assistant
Did you know that Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District is one of the eight Indiana agencies and organizations who share the common goal of promoting conservation in the Indiana Conservation Partnership? The agencies have agreed upon the mission to provide technical, financial and educational assistance needed to implement economically and environmentally compatible land and water stewardship decisions, practices and technologies.
The primary customers of the partnership are Indiana’s Farmers who are recognized as national leaders in our collaborative efforts to incorporate soil health systems into conservation planning, farm management and educational activities. The primary focus on implementing a soil health strategy has had tremendous success in helping farmers voluntarily address many of Indiana’s primary resource concerns.
The full list of partners includes:
• Indiana Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts and our 92 SWCDs
• Indiana Department of Environmental Management
• Indiana Department of Natural Resources
• ISDA Division of Soil Conservation
• Purdue Cooperative Extension Service
• Indiana State Soil Conservation Board
• USDA Farm Service Agency
• USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service
The partners provide leadership within Indiana on natural resource conservation issues. This innovative group is dedicated to land and water stewardship vision assistance that will improve the water quality of Indiana’s streams, rivers, and lakes.
