SOIL AND WATER CONSERVATION DISTRICT
The Mission of the West Pottawattamie SWCD is:
To coordinate available technical, financial, and educational resources, whatever their source, to meet the needs of the local land user.
Our West Pottawattamie County farmers and landowners in the rural areas play a key role in preserving our natural resources. Whether you own a small residential acreage or make a living farming there are plenty of ways that you can help!
As an urban resident you make up the largest portion of West Pottawattamie County and play a vital role in storm water management. You can have a big impact on our environment even if you live in a apartment or own a small residential lot.
Local leaders make important decisions on how to conserve our natural resources in all areas of the county. These decision makers can include city staff, elected officials, agency partners, and developers as well as many others.
Education & Outreach
Conservation education helps people of all ages understand and appreciate our country's natural resources - and learn how to conserve those resources for future generations. Through these programs, people develop critical thinking skills they need to understand the complexities of ecological problems.
