The Ocean County Soil Conservation District strives to build and sustain a conservation legacy through implementation of the Soil Erosion and Sediment Control Act, and through a robust Education & Outreach Program. The District views its role in protecting soil and water quality as integral to the health and vibrancy of our community. Through effective regulation and innovative education programs we can ensure a flourishing watershed that serves our constituents and sustains the natural resources of the region. As one of 3000+ soil conservation districts in the United States, and one of 14 in New Jersey, OCSCD embodies its role as a local conservation voice. The District is proud of our many accomplishments!
Our 2021 Annual Report was produced in an effort to share the success stories of the District. It represents the beginning of what we hope is an ongoing “Conservation Conversation” that will not only benefit the valuable natural resources of our county and region, but also the people that live and work in our local communities. In this year’s Annual Report we have shared a snapshot of the District – our staff, our partners, our programs and our projects. We hope that you will find our story of interest and we welcome your comments and input. The District looks forward to 2022 and the ongoing opportunity to do our part in protecting the resources of Ocean County.
