Jones Swamp Land Management

Mission Statement


The division provides Escambia County citizens with technical assistance to address land care concerns such as soil erosion and drainage issues, and also assists to assure adequate water supplies, reduced energy consumption, improved air quality and general conservation of the county's limited resources. The division partners with the United States Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service, or USDA/NRCS, to bring about conservation of land, water, and related resources. Technicians provide assistance to implement USDA/NRCS cost-share programs to local producers and landowners.
