Are you passionate about conserving our natural resources and making a difference in your community? If so, becoming a District Supervisor or Associate District Supervisor might be the perfect fit for you. As a District Supervisor or Associate, you’ll have the opportunity to influence local soil and water conservation initiatives, connect with like-minded individuals, and make a lasting, positive impact on our natural resources.

What Does a District Supervisor Do?

  • Set priorities: You’ll prioritize the identified needs and develop programs to meet these needs within the District.
  • Conduct District business: You’ll participate in monthly meetings to discuss and execute program activities.
  • Engage with local leaders: You’ll invite local leaders to discuss conservation problems and opportunities.
  • Understand and execute powers and responsibilities: You’ll need to understand the powers, authorities, and responsibilities placed upon you by the Soil and Water Conservation District Act.
