Morrison SWCD Staff
It takes people to make conservation work—people who are willing to spend their time, efforts to make it happen.
Within Morrison county and its connected watersheds, you will find people whose careers are committed to the conservation of the local natural resources. We are District Technicians, Water Plan Coordinators, Foresters, Conservation Agronomists, Administrative Assistants, Managers, and Engineers. We love what we do, because we love where we live, and we strive to protect the lands, and natural resources around us.
July 1, 1937, the Minnesota Soil Conservation District Law became effective thus paving the way for Soil and Water Conservation District to be established. With the passing of this law, a State Conservation Committee was established to help organize SWCD’s across the state. The State Conservation Committee was later changed to the Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources (BWSR) which still exists today.
