Douglas Soil and Water Conservation District
The Douglas Soil and
Water Conservation District (SWCD) was organized in 1954 by local farmers
for the purpose of promoting the art and science of good land use. The
SWCD assists landowners and operators in planning and applying the soil and
water conservation practices needed to protect and improve their soil and
water resources. The SWCD is a legal subdivision of the State of
Minnesota, operating under a charter issued by the Secretary of State on
November 12, 1946. The activities of the District are governed and
directed by an elected board of five supervisors.
Our Mission: To promote, guide and direct an action program which will result in efficient conservation of soil and water.
Our Goal: To encourage use of all Douglas County land within its capability and to treat each acre according to its need.
