|The Bristol Conservation District is a subdivision of government that is responsible and devoted to the wise use of Bristol County's natural resources. Established in 1946, the Conservation District provides technical assistance to farmers and other landowners in order to address soil and water resource issues. The District also conducts seminars and workshops for environmental decision-makers and urban planners and works closely with other federal, state, and local natural resource agencies to promote the conservation and sound management of natural resources.
Each Spring and Fall America's Conservation Districts sponsor tree, shrub, plant, and bulb sales to encourage planting for beautification, erosion control, wildlife food and cover, and windbreaks. Plants native to the area are sold as a fundraising project to sponsor the districts' other programs throughout the year which include scholarships, environmental workshops, and helping local citizens improve their surroundings. Districts receive no alloted money from the governement except for grants that they must apply for and win. All monies raised throughout the year is put right back into the county through their programs and work with the communities they represent.
