Mille Lacs Soil and Water Conservation District

to assist area people with soil and water resource management.

The Mille Lacs SWCD was established in 1953 and is governed by five locally elected supervisors who hold monthly public meetings. The District employs two regular full time staff in addition to temporary and seasonal staff hired to implement specific grant funded projects.

The SWCD provides technical and financial assistance to county residents, local government units, and watershed organizations as well as other agencies and organizations. We also provide assistance to individuals and organizations with natural resource management plans, implementation of the Wetland Conservation Act, natural resource education, and implementation of effective natural resource practices.

Our programs are funded through a variety of sources including county allocation, grants, contracts with local government units and watershed organizations, state and federal cost share, and a small amount from private industry.
