The Yellow Medicine Soil & Water Conservation District was duly organized as a governmental subdivision of this State, and a public body corporate and politic on the 17th day of April, 1950.  The SWCD works with landowners in both rural and urban settings to carry out a program for the conservation, use and development of soil, water and related resources.  The SWCD is governed by locally elected officials and staffed by professionals dedicated to serving you – the public.

Conservation Partners

The  SWCD, along with our partners from the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), work to provide voluntary, incentive-based conservation opportunities for Yellow Medicine County landowners to help keep our working lands productive, while improving our soil and water quality.  The co-location of our office with USDA means that our office can help coordinate cost-sharing for landowners from local, state and federal programs.
