OFFICE OPEN BUT LIMITED
CRWD-Mower SWCD and our USDA partners are keeping normal office hours but, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, have limited public access in person.
All are available by phone -- (507) 434-2603, ext. 5 -- or email. CRWD-Mower SWCD is staffing the office at low levels with the rest working from home. Thank you for your understanding.
SWCD distributes more than 9,000 trees
Mower SWCD staff on April 23-24 distributed more than 9,000 trees and shrubs ordered by the public through its annual program.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Mower SWCD staff wore masks and conducted a "drive-thru only" distribution.
Tree order forms each year typically are ready by December and sent to a mailing list. Those who would like to be added to the mailing list can send an email to email@example.com or 507-434-2603, ext. 5.

Cost-share available for well sealing
Mower SWCD is partnering with Austin Utilities to provide cost-share assistance to landowners interested in sealing an unused or abandoned well. Cost-share is 50% of the sealing cost (up to $1,000 per well) and focused on high-priority areas of Mower County (see colored areas of map below) on a "first-come, first-served" basis.
Those interested should contact Mower SWCD's Tim Ruzek at 507-460-4577 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
