Polk County SWCD

Mission: To provide leadership to help people improve, conserve and sustain our natural resources while educating them about the importance and practicality of maintaining our environment and quality of life.

The Polk County Soil and Water Conservation District is managed by five commissioners elected on the general ballot in each county. Commissioners address the natural resource issues that are most critical in the county. Technical assistance is provided by the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship-Division of Soil Conservation.

The Commissioners meet every third Tuesday at 9:00 AM at the USDA Service Center in Ankeny.
