Our SWCD’s vision is for a Mower County where our natural resources contributed significantly to our quality of life. The county takes pride in its soil protection programs, improved recreation opportunities, water quality and wildlife habitat.

This has been achieved through cost-efefctive, efficient county, state, federal and private partnerships. Because it represents local citizens through its elected board, the SWCD is recognized and visible for its unique leadership role.
