The Wadena County Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) is a major part of rural life in the area.

"We're always working to protect the water and soil resources of Wadena County," District Manager Malinda Dexter said.


All Minnesota counties have a Soil and Water Conservation District office. The SWCD offices are partly funded by the state and partly funded by local county governments.
