Each year the Conservation District administers the State Erosion and Water Quality Cost-Share program to assist landowners with addressing existing soil erosion, water quality, and other environmental problems associated with their farming or woodland operation. The program provides technical and financial assistance to landowners to address natural resource problems .
Each year the District provides a County cost-share program for livestock feeding pads for heavily-used areas. In 2012-2013, the District has added gateways to our programs to our program and drill rental for seeding. The gateways and heavy use areas are designed to eliminate muddy conditions where livestock are fed by using rock and geotextile fabric.
Each year the Boyle County Conservation District gives away approximately 4,000 tree seedlings in honor of Arbor Day. Of the 4,000 Trees approximately 2,100 are given to third graders in Danville, Boyle County, Danville Christian Academy, and the Kentucky School for the Deaf and 1900 are given to Boyle County landowners.
