 Holmes Soil and Water Conservation District works with the citizens of Holmes County, state and local agencies, and private organizations to promote responsible land use decisions. We are dedicated to the conservation, protection, and improvement of soil and water resources by providing information, technical guidance, and cost-share assistance.

Holmes SWCD receives the majority of its funding from the Holmes County commissioners and The Ohio General Assembly. Local government funding is matched by the state of Ohio to support SWCD operations, conservation programs, and resource management initiatives.

Additionally, we work closely with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service and Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Soil and Water Resources and the Ohio Federation of Soil and Water Conservation Districts. Our goal is to coordinate assistance from all available sources—public and private, local, state and federal—in an effort to develop locally-driven solutions to natural resource concerns.

We are located at the Ag Service Center, 62 West Clinton St, Millersburg 44654. Our hours are 8:00 am-4:30 pm Monday-Friday. Contact us at 330-674-2811.
