We are happy to inform you cost share is now available, on a limited basis, for structural practices such as waterways, structures and cover crops. You can do 40 acres that have never had cover crops on them and you have to have a seeding plan developed by our office. We can't cost share any work that has already been done prior to the approval of the SWCD Board. For more information, call at 815-772-2124 ext 3. Thank you.
Wood Duck Houses:
Locally built, functional rustic wood duck houses, $60 each. The boxes measure 24" X 9" X 9" and the side opens for easier cleaning. You will need to supply the pole, clamps and wood shavings. Put no more than 3" of wood shavings on the bottom. The rougher the wood, the more use it will get. Let us know if you are interested in purchasing one by calling 815-772-2124 ext 3.
