The District's field office staff assists farmers, landowners, and units of government by providing land-use planning, engineering services, agronomy recommendations, soils information, and other technical assistance related to natural resource management. This results in the completion of conservation practices that benefit cropland, woodland, and wildlife habitat while improving water quality throughout Barnwell county. USDA programs are available to provide cost share for some these conservation practices.

The District also offers a strong education program for all shcools in the county. This program includes poster and esay contests, environmental workshops, outdoor classrooms, earth day and soil stewardship programs, and distribution of materials to the students.
