Cobb SWCD is one of the 40 districts across the state of Georgia charged by the State Constitution to help support citizens with the management and improvement or our natural resources. Cobb SWCD relies upon successful partnerships with federal, state and local governments to help accomplish our conservation mission. We are especially grateful for their support and assistance to the district. The following chart attempts to help clarify our role and connection with our partners.
The Georgia Soil and Water Conservation Commission (GSWCC) provides soil and water resource information; education; technical, financial and planning assistance; and program oversight to locally led Soil and Water Conservation Districts; landowners/users; and local, state and federal governments to maintain, conserve and wisely use the soil and water resources for all Georgians.
The Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) has worked with Georgia landowners to protect the state's natural resources for 75 years. NRCS provides technical assistance on natural resources issues and assists individuals, groups, communities and counties to implement soil and water conservation practices to protect the 34 million acres of privately owned land in Georgia.
The Georgia NRCS works with people through a partnership effort to conserve and protect natural resources by helping people help the land.
The Georgia Association of Conservation District Supervisors (GACDS) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the protection and conservation of our state's natural resources. Our 370 members volunteer in each of Georgia's 40 soil and water conservation districts to promote conservation, educate citizens about the importance of conservation and inform policy makers about natural resource issues.
Conservation districts host educational events throughout the year, covering topics such as best management practices for agricultural production, erosion control, water conservation and improving wildlife habitat.
