Assisting people with soil and water resource management

It is the mission of the Mille Lacs Soil and Water Conservation District to assist area people with soil and water resource management.

Mille Lacs Soil & Water Conservation District

The SWCD provides technical and financial assistance to county residents, local government units, and watershed organizations as well as other agencies and organizations. We also provide assistance to individuals and organizations with natural resource management plans, implementation of the Wetland Conservation Act, natural resource education, and implementation of effective natural resource practices.

Our programs are funded through a variety of sources including county allocation, grants, contracts with local government units and watershed organizations, state and federal cost share, and a small amount from private industry.
