In 1978, the Soil Conservation Service (now the Natural Resources Conservation Service - NRCS) of the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture published the Soil Survey of Antrim County, Michigan. This replaced an earlier (1928) soil survey published by the Bureau of Chemistry and Soils of the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture.

The original maps contained in the Soil Survey have been digitized and are available from the Soil Maps section of the Map Index page of this website. These maps are useful for site planning, agricultural planning, and drainage planning, among other things.

A limited number of copies of the original publication may still be available upon request from the Antrim Conservation District, (231) 533-8363.
