What does it take to be a soil and water conservation District Supervisor?


Supervisors must have - or be willing to learn - some basic knowledge to effectively carry out their responsibilities. They must understand:

  • basic fundamentals about the environment and how it works

  • the relationship between land use decisions and the environment

  • the effect environmental decisions have on other aspects of our lives

  • local concerns, attitudes and needs



Supervisors must be concerned about:

  • our environment and natural resources

  • maintaining and improving water quality

  • protecting our soil



Supervisors must be willing to take an active leadership role in the community. This can involve: 

  • setting local conservation priorities

  • educating friends and neighbors about the environment

  • working with other local government units, state and federal agencies, and other elected officials

  • setting a positive example

  • taking unpopular stands

  • balancing economic needs with environmental concerns

  • sacrificing short-term gains for long-term benefits
