The 1948 Memorandum of Understanding between the Seminole Soil Conservation District and the United States Department of Agriculture. The Seminole Soil Conservation District organization began in 1948 with a goal of assisting agricultural interests.

Their interests included inventory and evaluations for land uses and solving issues concerning soil and water resources. In the 1948 memorandum, the Board articulates a goal to cooperate with the Department of Agriculture in order to achieve certain objectives pertaining to soil conservation and erosion control. The five page Memorandum discusses the implementation of a work plan for the Seminole Soil Conservaiton District. The memorandum is signed by R. F. Cooper and C. R.
