The Freehold Soil Conservation District is part of the New Jersey Natural Resources Program. Our goal is to provide leadership and to administer programs to help people conserve, improve, and sustain our natural resources and environment. As a conservation district we offer a variety of services to residents of Middlesex and Monmouth Counties. In response to growing concern for water quality, the District has become the primary local agency responsible for controlling nonpoint sources of pollution associated with construction, agriculture and mining. The technical services of the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service are made available through the District.
The Freehold Soil Conservation District will award two scholarships annually. Applicants must be New Jersey residents of Middlesex or Monmouth county, entering at least junior or senior year of college in the fall of the year the award is offered, and majoring in a field related to the conservation of our natural resources including agriculture, conservation studies, environmental education, environmental science, forestry, geology, landscape design, resource management, soil science or other related field.
