Welcome to your New Hanover Soil & Water Conservation District

We are here to serve the community in several ways: to bring environmental education to any interested class, group or organization, to assist public and private land owners with storm-water management, and to aid the community in open lands preservation and conservation.

Upcoming Events

BMP tour
Sep 23 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am

Is water quality important to you? Do you want to learn how you and NHC can make a difference in water quality? Join us for a BMP tour. Learn, see & experience the who, what, when, where and how citizens can make a difference in water quality by installing Best Management Practices (BMPs). BMPs help capture and filter storm-water that flows into our local waterways. Members of the public are invited and encouraged to attend. A second tour stop will be offered for those interested at Airlie Gardens.
