The Polk Soil and Water Conservation District (Polk SWCD) is a subdivision of state government administered by seven locally elected directors. Each director serves the board without pay for a four-year term. The body of the board is made up of five landowners or land managers from different county zones and two at-large directors who represent the entire county.
Thie Board works cooperatively to plan and oversee the implementation of the conservation district’s programs. As representatives of the conservation district board, opinions expressed publicly by individual directors are consistent with established board policy, regardless of the individual’s personal agenda or opinions. Directors meet monthly to administer the business of the SWCD. Each director donates their time and service on behalf of the residents of Polk County and its natural resources.
