Hancock County Soil and Water Conservation District provides local conservation leadership, encourages best practices, and helps to plan and implement voluntary programs in Hancock County, Maine. We conserve clean water and healthy soil by working alongside willing landowners to implement incentive-based voluntary conservation practices. District programs focus on polluted runoff, habitat restoration, citizen science, and education.

We’ve moved! The District’s new office is now located at the USDA NRCS office at 474 Bucksport Road, Ellsworth
