The legal boundaries of the district are the same as for Stone County. Anyone who owns or manages land within these boundaries is eligible for assistance through the district. Total acreage in the district is 286,720. Almost 14 percent of this is owned by the US Forest Service; over 5 percent is urbanized; another 1.5 to 2 percent is in recreational uses; while 0.5 to I percent is useful only for wildlife. This leaves almost 80 percent that is privately owned and suitable for agricultural production. Seine of these We, the commissioners of the Stone County Soil and Water Conservation District, wish to take this opportunity to report to the people our activities during the previous fiscal year (10-1-78 through 9- 30-79). The policies and programs of the district are determined by the members of the district through their commissioners. Each district has 5 commissioners. In Stone County they are: J. E.

There are also many fine • recreational facilities available to the public within the district. Flint Creek Water Park, operated by the Pat Harrison Waterway District, is near the town of Wiggins. It vrovides 1000 acres of camping, picnicking, hiking, and other activities including a 640 acre lake. Also there are Lake Tok-O-Leen, about 10 miles west of Wiggins on Highway 26; and Rogers Lake about 10 miles west of Perkinston or McHenry.

There are several timber companies located in the Wiggi area. The main e of all the open land is for row crops. Soybeans have become the major row crop over the past several years. The only other major use of open lands is pasture for beef cattle. The Stone County Board of Supervisors have cooperated with the SWCD in vegetating roadbanks in the district. Technical and financial assistance for roadside vegetation is provided by the Soil Conservation Service and the Resource Conservation and Development Project. This year 10 acres were vegetated in Beat 4. Main- tenance assistance was" also provided in Beat 1 for two acres of roadbanks that were vegetated last year.
