2019 Cooperators Dinner

September 11, 2019

Our annual tradition to honor cooperators for their good stewardship and conservation practices.

ABOUT US

Montgomery Soil Conservation District (MSCD)’s major function is to analyze natural resource needs and provide technical services to design and implement programs to solve soil and water conservation problems. District staff work closely with state extension and federal Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) staff to provide a science-based approach to these areas of agricultural production. Although landowners pay for implementation of Best Management Practices, the technical services provided by the District are without cost.

Education Programs

There is no aspect of our work that has more bearing on the future, or gives us more satisfaction than enriching someone’s knowledge about agriculture, soil conservation, and resource protection.  It is a priority that is intertwined in everything we do. 
 
The Supervisors exhibit their dedication to education by participating in Close Encounters with Agriculture, being judges for the State and National Envirothon competitions, and giving presentations to schools. 
 
The Staff makes conservation education an important part of their daily routine – every phone call, every meeting with a farmer, every talk for students is an opportunity to educate.
