60 YEARS OF CONSERVATION!
Established on May 26th of 1958, the Wadena Soil & Water Conservation District was organized by local farmers, with help from the Agriculture Extension Service. Early projects consisted of mapping soils on local farms and writing conservation plans.
2018 Board Meeting Schedule:
Meetings are held the 3rd Monday of each month at 8:00 a.m. at our office, unless otherwise noted.
MN Department of Agriculture's Ag Water Quality Certification Program
This is a voluntary opportunity for farmers and agricultural landowners to take the lead in implementing conservation practices that protect our water. Those who implement and maintain approved farm management practices will be certified and in turn obtain regulatory certainty for a period of ten years.
