Educational Resources

Need some great content for e-learning this year?

Check out our education webpage for activities, lesson plans, videos, and other resources focusing on soil health, water quality, native plants, and pollinators!


Our Mission at the Kankakee County Soil and Water Conservation District is to provide leadership and coordinate programs focusing technical, financial and educational assistance to help the landowner and the public protect, preserve and enhance our natural resources.


The Kankakee County Soil and Water Conservation District exists to provide information and services regarding the conservation, development and management of the land and water. Working closely with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), we help farmers and landowners establish practices that conserve soil, water, and other natural resources.

The K3SWCD provides services such as Natural Resource Information reports for those planning projects in the county. We also sell trees and shrubs, fish, and pollinator seed.


Education is an important component to the district, and we strive to provide the public with conservation-centric outreach opportunities and resources.

Protect Our Pollinators

Kankakee County SWCD is a friend to pollinators! The video above was created with scenes captured in a single afternoon, in an SWCD director's pollinator field. Farmers give back to pollinators by planting habitat in farm fields, providing valuable floral resources for insects. In this video alone 11 flowering plant species, 14 different insect species, and 2 bird species made an appearance (click here to view the species list). Imagine how many more plants, insects, and birds are benefiting from the establishment of native plant species!
