NRCS - Soil Conservation


The Soil Conservation Office, in partnership with Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), offers technical and financial resources that help farmers, ranchers and foresters conserve soil, protect water, and provide wildlife habitat. Our programs are voluntary and benefit both landowners and our environment. 

Our office is staffed by soil conservationists and soil conservation technicians who work with and support the Choctawhatchee River Soil and Water Conservation District.

For the citizens of Walton County, our office:

  • Provides opportunities for USDA-NRCS cost share programs in Walton County through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP), Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP)and other programs.
  • Provides technical hydro-logic engineering data necessary for the design of storm water and sediment control structures needed for stability in fields, agricultural operations, and pastures in the County.
  • Shares topographical and soils information to individuals and groups.
  • Maintains historical aerial photographs of Walton County.
  • Helps citizens find the correct agency to assist their conservation needs.
