About ASWCD:
more than 50 years of
voluntary conservation in Adams County

The Adams Soil & Water Conservation District (ASWCD) is one of 50
Conservation Districts in Idaho.  It includes all of Adams County in
west central Idaho. The District was organized April 21, 1966 and
was one of the last  three Districts to be formed in Idaho.  

Idaho’s Soil and Water Conservation Districts are political
subdivisions of state government but are not state agencies.  
Conservation Districts are charged with carrying out programs for the
conservation, use and development of soil, water, and other natural
resources within their boundaries.

The District accomplishes its mission through educational outreach,
technical help and access to financial assistance programs to help
landowners implement voluntary Best Management Practices. The
District is managed by a board of supervisors who are elected
Adams County residents.

District by reviewing our
