Our agency's mission is to provide exemplary leadership in natural resource conservation stewardship for the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

On our Web site you will find information on our division's programs as well as links to other soil, water and resource conservation activities. We have included programs not only within our department, cabinet and at the state level, but also links to other sites of interest throughout the nation. We hope you find this resource useful, and we look forward to hearing from you.
