From every conceivable angle - economic, social, cultural, public health, national defense - conservation of natural resources is an objective on which all should agree.
Soil and Water
The Soil and Water Conservation Society is a nonprofit scientific and educational organization -- founded in 1943 -- that serves as an advocate for conservation professionals and for science-based conservation practice, programs, and policy. Its members include researchers, administrators, planners, policymakers, technical advisors, teachers, students, farmers, and ranchers.
The Hugh Hammond Bennett Chapter is involved in a lot of things; we're an active group. Some of our projects include sponsoring the NC Envirothon and the Resource Conservation Workshop.
We, also, help maintain the homesite of Dr. Hugh Hammond Bennett in Anson County, North Carolina.
