Our mission at the Kankakee County SWCD is to provide leadership and coordinate programs focusing technical, financial, and educational assistance to help protect, preserve, and enhance our natural resources.
WHO WE ARE
The Kankakee County Soil and Water Conservation District provides information and services regarding the conservation, development, and management of our natural resources. Working closely with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), we help farmers and landowners establish practices that promote clean water and healthy soil.
We provide Natural Resource Information (NRI) reports for those seeking zoning changes, variances, and special use permits through the County Planning Department. We also sell trees and shrubs, fish, marking flags, and pollinator seed.
Education is an important component of our mission, and we strive to provide the community with conservation-centric outreach opportunities and resources.
