Soil and Water Stewardship Week is April 24–May 1, 2022. Healthy soil gives us life by providing clean air and water, ample crops and forests, productive grazing lands, diverse wildlife and beautiful landscapes.
The Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board (TSSWCB), Association of Texas Soil and Water Conservation Districts, Texas Wildlife Association and Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association are joining other state agencies and organizations in a statewide campaign to highlight the importance of voluntary land stewardship in Texas.
Since 1939, TSSWCB and soil and water conservation districts (SWCD) across Texas have been working to encourage the wise and productive use of natural resources. Their goal is to ensure the availability of resources for future generations so that all Texans’ present and future needs can be met in a manner that promotes a clean, healthy environment and strong economic growth.
As the population of the state continues to increase, maintaining the productivity of our soil and water resources becomes increasingly vital in meeting the food, fiber and resource needs for all Texans. TSSWCB and SWCDs are committed to working with farmers, ranchers and private landowners to conserve and protect the natural resources of Texas.
