Conservation Programs that Make a Difference
Alaska’s Soil and Water Conservation Districts are grassroots organizations within the framework of the state government that concentrate their resources on responsible use and conservation of our natural resources. This includes a variety of projects involving water resources, land resources and education.
While projects vary from district to district, the goal remains consistent – responsible use of Alaska’s abundant natural resources. That means opening up new farmland near Kenny Lake and protecting bear habitat on Kodiak Island.
Soil and Water Conservation Districts bring a balance to natural resources. The Districts and AACD promote responsible use of all types of resources – whether that means conservation, maintenance or harvest. We look at resource development from all angles – environmental concerns, human needs, economic ramifications, long-term impacts, sustainability, etc.
