Buffers are small strips of land in permanent vegetation, designed to intercept pollutants & manage environmental concerns.

Crow Wing SWCD works in tandem with Minnesota Conservation Corps crews.

A conservation easement is a voluntary, legal agreement that permanently limits uses of the land in order to protect its conservation values.

Crow Wing SWCD uses a variety of techniques, methods, and assessments to reconnect people with the natural world.
