Our Mission"

To provide local leadership in the conservation of soil, water, and related natural resources through programs and partnerships with individuals, businesses, organizations, and government.

"Who We Are"

The Wilkin Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) was established in 1944. Conservation Districts are local subdivisions established under state law to carry out a program for the conservation, use of development of soil, water, and related resources. The district's function is to assist land occupiers in both rural and urban settings. The Wilkin SWCD is administered by a five-member, elected Board of Supervisors. The districts receive their authority from Chapter 103C of Minnesota Statutes.

The District works cooperatively with other county agencies, local officials, and conservation groups. The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service works with the District by offering assistance to agricultural producers within the county. The Wilkin SWCD receives funding from the State of Minnesota, Wilkin County, through the acquisition of grants, and through self-generated revenues.
