ABOUT BCCD

The Bucks County Conservation District was created in a Resolution by the County of Bucks on April 24, 1961. At that time, it was determined that the conservation of soil resources and the control and prevention of soil erosion were problems of public concern in the County of Bucks. In addition, a substantial proportion of the rural landowners in the County of Bucks favored the creation of a soil conservation district.

While much of the Bucks County landscape and land use has changed over the past 60 years, the need to protect our water resources from pollution in the form of soil erosion has only become more immediate. In fact, the changing landscape of our County directly correlates with a higher potential of pollution to our county’s water resources. Therefore, the work of the BCCD to protect and improve those resources is only becoming more imperative. We accomplish this through various programs, environmental projects, public education efforts, and the enforcement of the Pennsylvania Clean Streams law.

We encourage you to learn more about the BCCD in the pages of our site.

PROTECTING THE COUNTY’S NATURAL RESOURCES

The Bucks County Conservation District works to educate and help people and the community take care of the natural resources in Bucks County including soil, water, wildlife, trees and other plants. Using natural resources wisely helps to ensure their availability well into the future.

This half-hour documentary explores and exposes threats to Pennsylvania’s watersheds, and highlights the efforts of committed scientists, water-quality advocates, and everyday citizens as they work to protect and restore the state’s streams and rivers . . . not only to benefit Pennsylvanians, but also for the health and safety of all of the life that exists in its downstream communities. Downstream was produced by Point Park University/Environmental Journalism, in association with WQED Multimedia.
