The Mini-Cassia Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCD) are sub-units of state government, responsible for soil and water conservation activities within its boundaries.  Both Districts are managed by a board of district supervisors elected to the position by Cassia County and Minidoka County residents.  They serve voluntarily and without pay.           

 

The SWCD supervisors work with farmers and ranchers, towns, counties, and government agencies at all levels.  By encouraging basic conservation work on private land, Cassia SWCD activities help control soil erosion and improve water quality.                    

Mission Statement

To encourage responsible natural resource management and to implement conservation goals which improve air, soil, and water quality while improving wildlife habitat.

 

To educate both youth and adults about our local conservation practices and needs.

Partnership

Soil and water conservation in Mini-Cassia is a partnership between Soil and Water Conservation Districts and the The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS).

The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is a federal agency in the U.S. Department of Agriculture, responsible for planning and carrying out a program to conserve and develop the nation's soil and water resources.  NRCS is the only federal agency that receives funds earmarked by Congress for providing direct technical assistance to soil conservation districts.  Under terms of a written agreement, NRCS becomes the SWCD's technical arm.

Together, this partnership strives to provide programs and assistance to landowners in order to improve conservation practices in Mini-Cassia.
