The Kerr County Soil and Water Conservation District is committed to serving the residents of Kerr County and to promoting soil and water conservation education and management across all age levels. Where possible, the District works with other organizations in getting conservation before the public. The District is a member of the Hill Country Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts, and works closely with organizations such as the Natural Resources Conservation Servive, the Kerr County Agrilife Office, the Upper Guadalupe River Authority, Farm Service Agency, the Hill Country Prescribed Burn Association, and many others.
Close work has been maintained with FFA and 4-H Clubs to help local youth realize the value of good management. The District offers sponsorships for students to attend the Youth Range Workhop and the Texas Brigades Camps. The District also has sponsored teachers to the “Studies in Natural Resouces” workshop.
Some of the major resource concerns outlined by the Kerr County SWCD are food and fiber for Kerr County residents, excessive brush that soaks up much needed water, soil erosion and water loss, and urban expansion of Kerr County. Help on conservation practices and planning assistance is provided by the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) office. At present, there are 4 technicians assigned to work with the Kerr County SWCD. They are Cole Jacoby, District Conservationist, Kelly Umphres, Soil Conservationist, Rebecca Svoboda, Range Conservationist, Richard Atkinson, Soil Conservationist, and Shannon Miller, Program Specialist. The NRCS office is located in the USDA Service Center at 2104 Memorial Boulevard, Suite 103, Kerrville, Texas. Phone: 830-896-4911 x 3.
