​State Soil Conservation Committee

Established in 1938, the State Soil Conservation Committee consists of 11 members representing local soil conservation districts and state and federal agricultural and natural resource agencies. The committee coordinates the activities of Maryland's 24 soil conservation districts and appoints district supervisors. The committee also develops, reviews, and refines policies on soil conservation and water quality issues, while advising the Secretary of Agriculture on these matters. Importantly, the committee serves as a forum for all agencies involved in protecting natural resources. The State Soil Conservation Committee  meets the third Thursday of every month.
