Soil. Water. Conservation. 

Paulding Soil and Water Conservation District works hard to help farmers implement conservation practices that conserve top soil and keep nutrients in place through Best Management Practices. This helps to keep nutrients and other resources where they are needed, in the soil, and out of waterways.

Classroom visits, field days and programming help to create an understanding and a connection to the natural environment so that as children grow, they will appreciate and conserve these precious resources.
