Dakota County Soil and Water Conservation District Landscaping for Clean Water registration opens | Free
The Dakota County Soil and Water Conservation District, a local government entity, is a resource for those interested in partnering for soil and water conservation.
One of its programs for Dakota County residents is Landscaping for Clean Water, which includes free training courses, garden design workshops, homeowner grants, and technical assistance with site visits.
The aim of the program is to teach residents how to beautify their farms while protecting local water quality and providing a habitat for pollinators.
The program went online in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2021 the program will continue to be virtual, although live introductory courses in clean water will take place via Zoom.
