About Us

Noble Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) was organized in July 1942. It was the 6th district to be organized in Ohio. The district is a legal sub – division of the state and state law mandates that the district be governed by  a board of supervisors (who serves without pay) consisting of 5 members. 

These members are elected for a three year term at our annual meeting held in the fall. Any resident or landowner in Noble County are eligible to participate in the election. Regular meetings are opened to the public and held the second Wednesday of every month.

Hey everyone, Noble Soil and Water along with The HARP Mission in Caldwell is trying to make christmas for 30 kids in Noble County. We are looking for any hunting, trapping, fishing, and even athletic gear you might have laying around that you would be willing to donate. This can include camo clothing, hunter orange clothing, deer grunt calls, turkey calls, fishing poles, baseballs, footballs, bats, gloves, basketballs, footballs etc.. Its great that we have kids that want to get out and experence the great outdoors instead of setting inside and playing video games. So help us spread the word to people around the county to help these kids out. If you dont have any of these items the HARP Mission will accept a cash donation and will go out and purchase the items needed. ... See MoreSee Less
