ALAPAHA SOIL & WATER CONSERVATION DISTRICT
The Alapaha Soil and Water Conservation District was organized on November 10, 1943, and comprises Berrien, Clinch, Cook, Echols, Lanier, and Lowndes Counties. Two District Supervisors from each county serve on a 12-member Board of Directors. Each county has an elected and appointed Supervisor serving a 4 and 2 year term respectfully.
By written agreement with and at the request of the Alapaha District, NRCS provides professional conservationists to help implement the District's long-range conservation programs. The Alapaha District channels the services of NRCS to cooperators, individuals, groups, and units of government - and sets priorities for the implementation of conservation practices.
