Description

The Transmittal of Schedule of Assistance of the Board of Supervisors of the Seminole Soil and Water Conservation District for 1953. The organization began in 1948 with a goal to assist in agricultural interests. Over the years, the Seminole Soil and Water Conservation District began to also concentrate on the development and management of recreational enterprises. Their interests also entailed inventory and evaluations for land uses and solving issues concerning soil and water resources. In this year's report, the board gives an annual review of the accomplishments of the past and a summation of the objectives for the next year. In the Transmittal of Schedule of Assistance from 1953, Albert R. Swartz, District Conservationist, writes to Homer L. Osborne, Chairman of the Board of the Seminole Soil Conservation District. Swartz states the kinds of assistance that would be made available by the Soil Conservation Service to the Seminole Soil Conservation District such as a Soil Conservationist, a Drainage Engineer, a Soil Scientist, an Engineer Aid, and a Conservation Aid. The two page document contains a planting materials list including Blanket Indigo, Early Indigo, Yellow Lupine, Crotalaria Lanceolata, Coastal Bermuda Stolons, and Rescue Grass (Chapel Hill).
