Lyon SWCD was established in 1945 to address the resource needs of land users in the area. Today, the SWCD assists not only rural but urban landowners with various programs and information the needed to protect the soil, water and air quality. The importance of these goals - and the accomplishments - will be easily measured in the future through a sound and healthy resource base. SWCD's are political subdivisions of the State, established under Minnesota Statue 103C. Each SWCD is governed by a Board of supervisors elected by the residents of the county. In June of 2012 an agreement was reached with Lyon County allowing the SWCD to become a department within the County but operating under its own Board. The SWCD Board and Staff are unique in that they live & work in the county and watershed area. The accomplishments and decisions that are made affect themselves, their families, their neighbors and friends. With these ties, the programs and services are for the good of the local area as well as the region - its resources, economy and our future generations. The SWCD's partner with other agencies and groups to ensure that the programs and funds we receive are utilized in a responsible manner and actions are coordinated to best suit the needs of the area resources and population - countywide as well as its watersheds.

The mission of the Lyon Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) is to provide high quality, professional assistance to the citizens and land users of our county providing them tools and programs to utilize in the protection and enhancement of our resources.
