The  SWCD, along with our partners from the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), work to provide voluntary, incentive-based conservation opportunities for Yellow Medicine County landowners to help keep our working lands productive, while improving our soil and water quality.  The co-location of our office with USDA means that our office can help coordinate cost-sharing for landowners from local, state and federal programs.

NRCS Staff located in Clarkfield are:
     Danielle Waldschmidt -  NRCS District Conservationist
     Jon Paul Pringle, NRCS Soil Conservation Technician
     Jeff Beren, NRCS Soil Conservation Technician
