Palmer Soil and Water Conservation District

 The Palmer Soil and Water Conservation District was started by local landowners in 1947 and is managed by a volunteer board composed of agricultural producers.  It is one of 12 such Districts in Alaska and covers the Matanuska River Watershed area.  We encourage and promote voluntary conservation practices and stewardship of natural resources on private land, working with a wide variety of partners.

Landowner Services- The District provides soil testing and nutrient management plans for cooperators.

Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) Projects- NRCS provides many landowner services to cooperators.Examples of programs include the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP), Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program, and Conservation Planning.

Conservation Education- The District provides educational activities in schools and throughout the community. The District has been involved with various fish passage projects and watershed activities.
