Kentucky Conservation Districts are governmental subdivisions of the state, organized under Kentucky Revised Statute 262. Conservation Districts are responsible for protecting our soil, water and other natural resources and are governed by the Kentucky Soil and Water Commission through the Kentucky Division of Conservation.
The Boone County Conservation District was established in 1942 following a referendum of the citizens of the county. Seven locally elected officials, who serve a four-year term without pay, govern the Conservation District.
The Conservation District makes technical and financial help available to reduce soil erosion, prevent water pollution, and maintain and improve the quality and productivity of our farmlands, forests, and other natural resources. Assistance is available to everyone in dealing with natural resources issues, including farmers, homeowners, businesses, schools, organizations, agencies, cities and local governments
