Soil & Water

The St. Lawrence County SWCD has been helping concerned landowners care for their natural resources since 1957.

Mission: The function of the SWCD is to represent the county in obtaining technical, financial, and education resources from federal, state, and other sources and coordinate them to meet local needs in natural resource conservation, management, and development.

Confidentiality Statement: As the District is a non-regulatory agency, the information shared with the District will be kept confidential and used only for planning purposes.  Currently, information collected through grant programs and requested by other agencies is given to them using a number classification system, not by using names.

We're now on Facebook! Please like our page to see what's going on with the District. If you would like to email the District, we may be reached at We'd love to hear from you!

 Notice: The St. Lawrence County Soil & Water Conservation District continues to be closed to the public. District Staff will be monitoring and replying to all voicemails and emails received as quickly as possible.  Appointments may be able to be arranged by calling (315) 386-3582. Thank you for your patience during this time.
