The Guiding Principles of Soil and Water Conservation Districts

We know that Minnesotans take great pride in the precious natural resources our state has to offer. • We believe that people inherently want to help the environment for future generations and be good stewards of the land. • We believe that healthy soil and clean water are key contributors to Minnesota’s economic vitality. • We strive to help Minnesota landowners care for the land in a collaborative way, approaching each project with an open mind. • We believe that conservation services must be flexible and customized to achieve the best results. • We believe that conservation work is best conducted locally by people who live, work and recreate in the communities they serve.
