  About Soil and Water Conservation Districts:
Soil and Water Conservation Districts work as the grass roots connection between local, state and federal agencies and producers and have done so since 1935, when Congress agreed to a Soil Conservation Service after spending an afternoon in session with skies darkened by soil particles blown in from the Great Plains. The Southern Aroostook Soil and Water Conservation District became recognized under Maine State Law in January of 1942. Since then, the SASWCD has grown from working with farmers as conservation "cooperators" to include all landowners.

SASWCD MIssion: Assist and educate the public to promote stewardship of soil and water resources to landowners.
The Southern Aroostook SWCD is locally-led by a volunteer board of Supervisors who direct district staff in determining natural resource priorities and educational programs. The current board of Supervisors include:
Elected and Appointed Supervisors:
Gene Lawlor, Board Chair, Merrill       Peter Qualey, Sherman
Jon Scott, Linneus                               Perry Lilley, Smyrna
Sue Caswell, Dyer Brook
Associate Supervisors:
Tim O'Donnell, Hodgdon                    Linda Trickey, Smyrna
Education for all landowners is an important part of our work. Check out listings under "Events" to see what is happening this summer in Southern Aroostook.
