Since 1947, Upper Llanos SWCD has worked with landowners to promote effective land use, protect, establish and ensure conservation and proper ecology. A District Clerk and Board of Directors works with NRCS and other state and federal agencies to implement conservation plans to ensure your lands are preserved for the future, while being used effectively and efficiently in the present. The District is here to serve the landowners of Kimble County. Please don't hesitate to contact the office for technical assistance or questions through this website, by phone (325)446-2722, or at the office at 902 College St., Junction, TX.

Caitlyn McIntosh, Soil Conservationist, has joined the Junction Field Office of NRCS and Kimble County landowners are going to enjoy her knowledge and enthusiasm. She is a native of San Angelo, a graduate of Texas A & M, and currently resides in Kerrville. Her parents are not new to Kimble County, as her dad used to live around Roosevelt (a while ago). After graduation, she served 2 years in the Peace Corp, lending her knowledge to help the people of Zambia, Africa.
