The Alapaha 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.
