State name change

On May 23, 1940 the Perdido Soil and Water Conservation District was established.  The name formally was changed to the Escambia Soil and Water Conservation District on May 16, 1995.

The District was formed by  residents for the purpose of promoting and encouraging the wise use, management and general conservation of the County’s soil, water and related natural resources.

The Escambia Soil & Water Conservation District works closely with the U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS)

The Escambia SWCD operates under Florida Statutes 582 under the Florida Legislature.
