The objectives of the Perry County Conservation District are to educate the public, especially the youth. We want everyone to know and understand the principles of conservation, while striving to improve land and water quality for the present and for future generations.
It is our goal to establish a plan that will promote programs for farmers and landowners, meet the needs of an expanding population and maintain a sufficient amount of our natural resources for those yet to come.
The Perry county Conservation District was established on February 18, 1952. The District was organized for the purpose of administering an overall program that would provide for the best possible use of all the county’s soil and water resources; that would control, abate and prevent soil erosion, flood damage and sedimentation; that would preserve wildlife and forest lands; that would conserve all types of natural resources which would promote the health, safety and general welfare of the District, the Commonwealth and the Nation. The District is a sub-division of State Government governed by a seven member elected board of supervisors, composed of landowners, producers, and business persons, whose powers and duties are set forth in the Soil Conservation Act of 1940 and amendments. The Board is responsible for entering into a working agreement with Federal, State, County and other organizations who can render assistance in developing and carrying out a sound program of work that meets its conservation objectives
