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 various recreational activities. These same systems create healthy habitats for organisms, both inland and along the Long Island Sound. Improved habitats, protected natural resources, and native populations are also beneficial to human health.
