Cost Share....                                                   5/23/2017

Whiteside Co. Landowner,

After several years without any state cost share funds, the SWCD finally received an allocation. At this time we are taking applications for w/ways, structures, well sealing, cover crops, and nutrient management plans. Some of these practices are cost shared at a 50% rate up to a certain amount while others are paid on a per acre basis.

If you are interested in any of these practices, please stop by the office so we can get a location and discuss the particulars of the practice with you. We would like to get the fields looked at before the corn gets too tall so the construction or application of cover crop can begin shortly after harvest.

For more information please stop by the office or phone 815 772 2124 ex. 3. If you have stopped earlier and no one has been out yet, please call again as we have been extremely busy with other program deadlines.

Thanks for your time,

Dave Harrison, RC - Whiteside Co SWCD -16255 Liberty St - Morrison, IL 61270

Great News from the SWCD Education Foundation....

We have discovered a new way for you to donate to the SWCD Education Foundation - by shopping Amazon. 


1. If you shop Amazon, the only simple change is you have to logon to smile.amazon.com. The login will be the same as if you were logging on to amazon.com. 

2. Once you login to smile.amazon.com, you may select the charitable organization. You can make it easier to find ours by doing a search of Whiteside County and 

    selecting it from the list of organizations. 

3. Once you have your charitable organization chosen, shop as you normally would, if the item is eligible it will indicate "Eligible for AmazonSmile donation" under 

    the item. 

4. After you make your purchase and log out, amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase to our organization. 


Please click this link to get started, https://smile.amazon.com/ch/36-4371645.
