Each county in Indiana has a soil and water conservation district (SWCD). SWCDs are subdivisions of state government lead by a 5 member board of supervisors. SWCDs address issues involving natural resource issues and needs in their counties. Some of these issues are agricultural conservation, urban conservation, forestry, wildlife, water management and natural resource education. About this site The Allen County Soil & Water Conservation District has developed this website to provide information relevant to our local farmers, developers, educators and home owners about protecting and conserving our valuable soil and water resources for future generations. As events and programs are scheduled, our website will be updated with current information about when and where they are being presented. If there is anything you would like to see on this website, please contact us with your ideas.
