Soil & Water Conservation District

The Suffolk County Soil and Water Conservation District are getting prepared to celebrate their 50th Anniversary on September 18, 2014 from 2:00PM to 6:00PM on the grounds and within the main conference room of the building.  The Suffolk SWCD was established in 1964 through Suffolk County Resolution No. 245.  The District staff plans to commend their efforts and accomplishments throughout the 50 years with the farming community, landowners, and municipalities in cooperation with their local, state and federal partners, the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, the Long Island Farm Bureau, Cornell Cooperative Extension and Research Lab, the NYS Soil & Water Conservation Committee, the New York State Dept. of Ag & Markets, the New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation, the New York Association of Conservation Districts and the NYS Soil & Water Conservation Districts Employees Association.

Planned for the event are presentations of Ag Environmental Management (AEM) awards to be given to two farmers, one on the North Fork and another on the South Fork; photo illustrations of ag practices that have been installed, examples of education and outreach programs, including workshops, classes, and conferences, history of Soil and Water Districts overall and our local history highlighting past directors and staff.  We have invited guest speakers and will begin ceremonies at 2:30PM.   Among the festivities of the afternoon will be demonstrations on the grounds of the District Ag Plastic Baler and tours of the District’s Rain Garden.  Refreshments and handouts will be available, and the day will be a media event. We are looking forward to a successful day.  Please join us for this 50th Anniversary open house event!
