The mission of the Southwest Conservation District is to provide technical assistance, information, and education in natural resource conservation and management to agricultural cooperators, landowners, and the public across 43 municipalities in southwest Connecticut.
Improved soil conservation and water quality means healthier natural systems. These systems provide water for drinking, eating, bathing and recreational activities such as swimming. These same healthy systems create habitats for healthy organisms, both inland and on the coastal Long Island Sound. Improved habitats, protected natural resources, and native populations are also beneficial to human health.
