To represent and empower Illinois’ Soil and Water Conservation Districts.


The Association of Illinois Soil and Water Conservation Districts (AISWCD), is a grass roots non-profit organization formed in 1948. It is made up and serves Illinois’ 97 member Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCDs). Illinois SWCDs work to protect Illinois’ greatest assets – the rich, fertile soils and water resources of the state through strategic conservation efforts. SWCDs, 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’ natural resources for future generations through voluntary conservation efforts. Clean water, healthy soils.
