Lincoln Hills RC&D
Organized locally in February of 1963, and designated as a Resource Conservation & Development Area in October of 1964, Lincoln Hills RC&D not only was among the first group of RC&Ds established in the nation, it was in fact the first RC&D authorized by the Secretary of Agriculture.
Natural resources conservation and rural development area planning and implementation are the central functions of Lincoln Hills RC&D. Serving the needs and opportunities within the four county area of Crawford, Harrison, Perry and Spencer, Lincoln Hills RC&D has had a historic and unique role in addressing issues involving land conservation, land management, water management, and rural community development.
This area of southern Indiana is truly distinctive in its vistas of rolling farmlands, open spaces, timbered hills and historic structures. Covering an area of 1,005,440 acres and bordered by Interstate 64 on the north and the Ohio River on the south, these four counties have the unique public lands and natural resources of the Hoosier National Forest and Lincoln Boyhood Memorial, along with numerous state forests, state parks, and state nature preserves. Likewise,the Nature Conservancy opened an office in Corydon, Indiana for the conservation efforts on the Blue River, Indiana’s only Wild and Scenic River by federal designation, which lies between Crawford and Harrison Counties.
Lincoln Hills RC&D was legally incorporated and designated as a 501(c)(3) in June of 1987.
The mission of the Lincoln Hills RC&D is to coordinate and develop programs, resources, and funding to bring about a higher quality of life for the citizens of the Lincoln Hills region.
The vision of the Lincoln Hills RC&D is to have a favorable economic climate in harmony with all resources utilized for a higher quality of life.
