BROWN SWCD CELEBRATES SOIL AND WATER STEWARDSHIP WEEK

BROWN SWCD CELEBRATES SOIL AND WATER STEWARDSHIP WEEK

2021 THEME: “HEALTHY FORESTS, HEALTHY COMMUNITIES”


For over 80 years, Minnesota’s Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCDs) have been hard at work protecting our resources by working with landowners on programs and practices that support conservation and healthy working lands.  

In partnership with the National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD), Brown SWCD honors and celebrates that work as part of Soil and Water Stewardship Week, April 25 – May 2, 2021. 

This year’s theme is “Healthy Forests, Healthy Communities”.

Trees are vital. As the biggest plants on the planet, they absorb carbon from the atmosphere, stabilize the soil, filter water, provide healthy habitat for wildlife and offer many additional benefits – for nature, people and biodiversity. Not only is it necessary to protect existing trees and plant new ones, but it’s also important to advocate and educate about trees and forest conservation within your community.

Brown SWCD encourages residents to visit the NACD website for more information about this year’s Soil and Water Stewardship Week theme: Healthy Forests, Healthy Communities
