Who We Are
The Lincoln Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) was organized July 3, 1944. 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 district is a political subdivision of the state and is governed by a five member Board of Supervisors. The board sets policy, hires employees, and is responsible to see that the operations of the district are run effectively and according to the law and rule.
What We Do
The Lincoln Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) along with our partners from the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and Farm Service Agency (FSA) work to provide voluntary, incentive-based conservation opportunities for landowners of Lincoln County to help keep our working lands productive, while improving our soil and water quality. The co-location of our office with the USDA means that our office can help coordinate cost-sharing for landowners from local, state and federal programs.
To protect and improve the quality of our water, soil and natural resources by providing programs and services to the citizens and owners of Lincoln County to implement conservation practices.
