WHO WE ARE
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 district residents to implement practices that conserve their soil, water and other natural resources.
Education is an important component to the district, and we strive to provide the public with information, outreach, and resources regarding the conservation of our natural resources.
