Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCD)

MNL proudly partners with SWCD’s and their mission to conserve and develop soil, water, and related natural resources on rural and urban lands. Prairie plantings, stream restorations, and seed offerings are a few of the many ways MNL serves SWCD’s throughout the area.


One of the duties of the SWCD is to develop a comprehensive and annual plan for the conservation of soil and water resources. These plans are required for the district to receive state grant funds.*
