Our Mission

To serve the residents of Freeborn County by creating an awareness of soil and water resource concerns, by offering practical alternatives to manage these concerns, and by providing technical assistance (as local resources allow) to apply and maintain best management practices (BMPs) that impact water quality while sustaining soil productivity and land-user profits.

Thinking about implementing cover crops or structural practices? We have cost share available for many practices. Stop down at the NRCS/SWCD office to see if you may be elligible!
