What Can We Do?


Technical Workload

We facilitate the Partners for Conservation Program which is funded through Illinois Department of Agriculture. Through this program we can do all the technical work at creating a plan or design to implement conservation practices on your property with cost share available.


Education/ Outreach

Our district strives to pass on knowledge about conservation, conservation products, cost share options on the local, state, and federal level, and inform our communities and the upcoming generations of agriculturalists about conservation and soil health/ water quality.



We host many sales throughout the year, including fish sales in the spring and fall, as well as cool water fish sales in the early winter. We also host plant sales in the Spring. 

We have construction fabric, construction flags, tile probes, and soil and water merch for sale year round.
