The TACS Program supports implementation of “on-the-ground” conservation projects that protect and improve water quality in rivers, lakes, streams and other valuable water resources in Scott County.


We sell low-cost, high-quality tree and shrub seedlings, native prairie seed mixes, and live plant kits. There's something for everyone to help make our county a more beautiful and environmentally friendly place to live!  Visit scottswcdtrees.com to find out more!


 Since 1941, the Scott Soil and Water Conservation District in Jordan, Minnesota has been helping Scott County citizens protect and preserve land and water resources. We are dedicated to working directly with landowners and agencies:


  • to promote wise and sustainable use of our land and water related resources

  • to educate and inform the public about these uses

  • to help solve resource problems within the District

  • to serve as a county-wide natural resource information and referral center.

The Scott SWCD is a political subdivision of the State of Minnesota established to carry out a program for the conservation, use and development of soil, water and related resources. 



Promote and support the conservation of natural resources in Scott County through strong partnerships, trusted relationships and excellent service.
