The Payette Soil & Water Conservation district was organized in February, 1958, to help local farmers and ranchers voluntarily conserve soil, water and other resources. For more than 50 years, the Payette SWCD has provided technical, financial and educational support to landowners within our service are in Payette County in southwest Idaho.

In an effort to ensure that present and future communities within Payette County continue to enjoy the best soil, water and other natural resources, the Payette SWCD works hand in hand with local landowners to sustain a healthy, productive environment.

We value and support responsible uses of natural resources, including agricultural activities that are ecologically and economically sustainable.

We respect and support the Idaho Conservation Partnership and conservation education for youth and adults.
