Re-elected to a three year term, Ford and Enos join Bill Bertram, Myron Dellinger, and Steve Douglass in administering the Guernsey SWCD’s natural resource conservation programs.
Born out of the Dustbowl years, the Guernsey SWCD was organized in 1942 to further the natural resource conservation mission. As a subdivision of state government, soil and water conservation districts have legal authority to assist landowners with a wide range of soil, water, woodland and wildlife conservation objectives. Another important goal is to provide information and education programs on natural resource conservation and management topics for county residents.
