To represent and empower Illinois’ Soil and Water Conservation Districts.
The Association of Illinois Soil and Water Conservation Districts (AISWCD), is a grass roots organization formed in 1948. It is made up and serves Illinois’ 97 member Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCDs). Soil & Water Conservation Districts work to protect Illinois’s greatest assets – the rich, fertile soils and water resources of the state through strategic conservation efforts. Soil and water conservation districts, working in conjunction with agricultural as well as environmental stakeholders, have for decades over played a central role in efforts to protect and sustain the viability of Illinois’s natural resources for future generations.
