Conservation Partnership

Cabarrus Soil and Water Conservation District is part of a unique partnership of local, state and federal agencies dedicated to the conservation of natural resources. These partners include Cabarrus County, the Natural Resource Conservation Service in the US Department of Agriculture, and the Division of Soil and Water Conservation in the NC Department of Agriculture. The Cabarrus Soil and Water Conservation District also works closely with the state Forest Service and Wildlife Resources Commission and provides staff assistance to the Cabarrus County Watershed Improvement Commission.

The Cabarrus Soil and Water Conservation District has also partnered with the Land Trust for Central NC through a Memorandum of Agreement. This memorandum is the first of it's kind in the nation between a conservation district and a land trust.

This partnership enables Cabarrus Soil and Water Conservation District to leverage at least a dollar from state, federal or private sources from every county tax dollar it receives.
