The North St. Louis Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) is a local government agency providing conservation and resource management services. In cooperation with federal, state and local agencies, the District provides technical assistance, cost-sharing and natural resource management information and education. Landowners, businesses, industry and agencies may request these services.
Our district covers the boundaries highlighted in green above. We service land-occupiers in St. Louis County, north of the 54th township line. The district is operated by locally elected board supervisors from 5 Supervisor Nomination Districts outlined above.
