About Us :

Our Mission Statement:

To enhance the soil, water, and natural resources necessary for productive and profitable agriculture; safe and affordable drinking water; and wildlife habitat for all Stearns County residents, businesses, and visitors.

The Stearns County Soil & Water Conservation (SWCD) District is a local unit of government that manages and directs natural resource management programs at the local level. The SWCD works in both urban and rural settings, with landowners and with other units of government, to carry out a program for the conservation, use, and development of soil, water, and related resources.

The SWCD has adopted the Stearns County Local Water Management Plan as our Plan of Operation.
