The primary purpose of the Catoosa County Conservation District is to encourage the application of sound conservation measures which will improve and protect our soil, water, air, animal and plant resources, while also providing for sustainable agricultural production and smart residential, commercial and industrial development within Catoosa County, GA.
We are a non-regulatory organization working cooperatively with private landowners to reduce soil erosion, improve water quality, and assist in the conservation and utilization of all natural resources.
Some services available through the District and our Conservation Partners, the Georgia Soil & Water Conservation Commission and the USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) include:
-Environmental and conservation education programs
-Farm conservation planning
-Residential conservation assistance
-Erosion and sedimentation plan review
-No-Till Drill Program: Through a long standing agreement with the Limestone Valley RC&D Council, the Catoosa County Conservation District makes available a no-till drill rental program open to the public to encourage conservation tillage in our District.
Some 300 acres of land were planted in Catoosa County utilizing the no-till drill in the Fiscal Year Ending September 30, 2016. Access to this drill is provided by a cooperative agreement between the Catoosa Conservation District and Limestone Valley RC&D.
