Marketing Materials & Resources

There’s no sense in reinventing the wheel, and same goes for creating marketing materials. In the last newsletter we talked about key components to consider when creating your resource materials and outreach. But, why go through all the time designing, creating and producing materials that have already been done for you? We have comprised a list of resources that contain materials, many of which you can start using right away!

VASWCD: Educational Materials


The VASWCD has created a resource page containing multiple Envirothon materials for your use. Click on the items below to be taken to that outreach material. Additional Envirothon Resources can be found at the VASWCD SWCD Template webpage. Please contact Beth Sokolik for the password. Items below include Envirothon Postcard, Envirothon Brochure, Area Envirothon T-shirts, and an Envirothon Poster. Many of these materials have already been printed for you. For questions regarding the materials below please contact Beth Sokolik.

Youth Conservation Camp

The VASWCD has also worked at creating outreach materials for YCC. Below is the 2016 YCC Postcard. Please contact Beth Sokolik to recieve these and future postcards.

Your Marketing Materials

The VASWCD Marketing Committee is here to help you. If you would like any assistance with your outreach and materials please contact the VASWCD office or the marketing committee at marketing@vaswcd.org.

DCR: Conservation Marketing Warehouse

DCR contracted with a marketing firm to conduct research and develop professional materials SWCDs can use in one-on-one marketing to farmers. You will find everything needed to sell conservation practices and cost-share in this digital warehouse. You may use these materials as they see fit. Please let DCR know how they work for you.
Some of these resources include:


NACD: District Resources

NACD can help meet needs of SWCDs and many others through the resources they provide for conservation districts through their District Resources page. Some of the resources include but are not limited to:

  • Education Resources– The materials are designed for use in communities to promote conservation of our natural resources.
  • Working with Conservation Districts: A Guide for Military Installations– This Primer is designed to help Department of Defense officials and military base commanders gain a better understanding of how conservation districts operate in making land-use and other natural resources decisions that may affect military operations, as well as to facilitate communications and potential collaboration among stakeholders on encroachment issues.
  • District Guides– There are many resources outside of marketing your district in this section. Some of the marketing resources include Fun Ways to Fundraise, More Dollars for your District, Fundraising for Districts, Community Conservation Brochures, and Tips for Working with Local Media.
