Allen Soil And Water

Conservation District




The mission of the Allen Soil and Water Conservation District is to promote the wise use, improvement and maintenance of the soil, water and other natural resources in Allen County.

The Allen Soil and Water Conservation District provides technical, financial, and education resources to meet the needs of local land users for conservation. We work with farmers on conservation practices to protect soil productivity, water quality, air quality, forestland and wildlife habitat. We also conserve and restore wetlands, protect groundwater, encourage landowners to plant trees and other ground cover, work with developers to control soil erosion and protect water resources during construction, and teach conservation and the importance of natural resources to both children and adults.

Interested in environmental conservation? Apply for an internship at the Allen Soil and Water Conservation District.
