Larkin Moyer’s 25 Years of Service Piedmont SWCD

Larkin Moyer, an elected soil and water conservation district director from Amelia County, received recognition for 25 years of service on the Piedmont Soil and Water Conservation District Board of Directors.  He is currently the Chair of the Board and serves on several committees. Outside of his District roles, he promotes natural resource conservation in his farming community, where he implements water quality best management practices on his family  farm. In 1939, Larkin’s grandfather was the first chairman of the Piedmont Soil and Water Conservation District Board  and laid the foundation for Larkin’s interest and commitment to the conservation of our natural resources.  

Programs are initiated by a volunteer Board of Directors and carried out by staff members. Two directors from each county are elected to a four-year term. Two additional directors are appointed: one serving as director-at-large and the other representing Virginia Cooperative Extension. Associate directors, who are non-voting members, are also appointed by the Board.
