Mission

"The Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District has been working to manage and promote the wise use of natural resources in Hamilton County since 1965."winteroffice

The Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District staff members work to reduce soil erosion, protect water quality and quantity, manage invasive species, and offer diversified programs and educational events to the public.  In order to protect the integrity of Hamilton County's natural resources, the District provides technical assistance to land owners, municipalities, and organizations that meet conservation needs.

In 1937, President Franklin D. Roosevelt combated the Dust Bowl by passing legislation that supported the establishment of Soil and Water Conservation Districts by local governments to conserve soil and water. The Soil and Water Conservation District Law was adopted by the State of New York in 1940.

The Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District was established on February 4, 1965. Hamilton County is the third largest in New York State, and the least populated. Sixty three percent of the land is state owned Forest Preserve and remains unaltered by development. 89% of the county is forested, 5% is water and 6% is open area and hamlets.

Castle RockSoil and Water Conservation Districts are a sub-division of New York State and receive funding from a variety of sources, including New York State Agriculture and Markets, the Finger Lakes - Lake Ontario Watershed Protection Alliance, local county appropriation, grant awards and earned income programs.  Thank you to these organizations for their support. 

Districts are located in each county or borough in New York State and are governed locally by a Board of Directors. Directors are representatives from various local groups, two Town Supervisors that are appointed from the County Board of Supervisors, one representative from the Farm Bureau, one representative from The Grange and one member at large.

The Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District Board of Directors meets the first Tuesday of every month at 9:30 AM at the District office in Lake Pleasant. The public is welcome to attend.

All programs of the Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District and Natural Resources Conservation Service are offered on a nondiscriminatory basis without regard to race, color, national origin, gender, religion, age, disability, political belief, sexual orientation, or marital or family status.

Responsive Layouts

Oculus's responsive grid system is designed for desktop, tablet and smartphone systems, each with minor modifications to ensure compatibility in each mode. The table above shows the breakdown of screen resolutions and associated devices, and what layout characters are then applied to each.

Responsive Classes

Another useful feature available, via Bootstrap, is the collection of responsive utility classes that can be used to help tweak layouts by providing a simple method of showing or hiding modules. Insert the above module class suffixes into your settings to show/hide a module for a particular mode.

The District’s accomplishments would not be possible without the support of the State of New York, Hamilton County, and FLLOWPA.
