Scioto SWCD offers services for local homeowners to enhance their property with conservation in mind.  Here are just few ways we can help:




“We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big difference, ignore the small daily differences we can make which, over time, add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee.”
– Marian Wright Edelman

     We are at your service to help make your home a better place for wildlife.  Scioto SWCD offers free consults, multiple free sources of literature, public speeches and trainings, as well as workshops on backyard conservation.  Not only can you make your home a nicer place, you can help make the whole world a little nicer too!

      Water conservation is an important issue and having plentiful free rain water is always useful for watering your garden, washing your car, and much more.  

      Scioto SWCD offers rain barrels through our office at a cost of $30 for the adapter kit and barrel.  We also offer training, and workshops on the topic as well.  Call today to find out more!

     Our soil testing services are not only for agricultural producers, but also for home gardeners too.  Flowers not doing so well?  Grass looking a little poor?  

    Don’t Guess - Soil Test!      Always check your soil test before you fertilize or amend your soil at home.  Test samples are simple to collect, relatively inexpensive, and results return quickly.
