Soil & Water

The St. Lawrence County SWCD has been helping concerned landowners care for their natural resources since 1957.

Mission: The function of the SWCD is to represent the county in obtaining technical, financial, and education resources from federal, state, and other sources and coordinate them to meet local needs in natural resource conservation, management, and development.

Confidentiality Statement: As the District is a non-regulatory agency, the information shared with the District will be kept confidential and used only for planning purposes.  Currently, information collected through grant programs and requested by other agencies is given to them using a number classification system, not by using names.

We're now on Facebook! Please like our page to see what's going on with the District. If you would like to email the District, we may be reached at conservation@slcswcd.org. We'd love to hear from you!


 

Notice: Update 9/17/21:


The St. Lawrence County Soil & Water Conservation District continues to be closed to walk-in public. This is due to the increase in COVID cases and rules we are required to follow since we are located in a federally owned building.

  • Appointments can be arranged by calling (315) 386-3582 or emailing through our website at slcswcd.org.  In office staffing remains limited.  Staff will be monitoring and replying to messages received as quickly as possible.
     
  • New guidelines for Federal Buildings require that all employees, contractors, and visitors must wear masks in all USDA buildings regardless of vaccination status. 
     
  • Thank you for your patience during this time.   St. Lawrence County Soil & Water Conservation District Staff
