The mission of the North Cook County Soil and Water Conservation District is to provide information, education, and guidance in the conservation and wise use of natural resources within the District by:

1. Educating the public and encouraging local governments to plan, pass, and implement ordinances for protecting health, safety, and general welfare of the people of the District and its soil and water resources.

2. Work with all residents and units of government in protecting and increasing public lands.

3. Assist communities in understanding the need to identify, preserve, and enhance our natural communities of forests, savannas, prairies, and wetlands as well as areas that serve as important wildlife habitats.

4. Provide assistance in protecting the wetlands, lakes, and rivers in our communities from damage caused by point and non-point source pollution, flooding, erosion, and sediment.
