What is the SWCD?

Crow Wing Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) works hand in hand with private landowners to accomplish soil and water conservation goals. We coordinate with nonprofits and other agencies to provide technical and financial assistance for landowners to protect the land and water resources we all enjoy.
