Hancock County Soil & Water Conservation District

Hancock County Soil and Water Conservation District provides local conservation leadership, encourages best practices, and helps to plan and implement voluntary programs. 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 located at 192 Main Street in Ellsworth. That’s the large brick building that’s home to Flexit and several other locally-owned businesses. The District office is on the second floor.
