Congratulations to Edon & Margo Brown!

2017 Outstanding Conservationist.

Each year the Nicollet Soil and Water Conservation District Board of Supervisors selects an "Outstanding Conservationist in Nicollet County". Eldon & Margo were chosen, because of their many years implementing conservation practices within the 7-Mile Creek Watershed.  Sediment Control Basins, Buffer Strips, and Native Grass Plantings are just a few of the practices installed.
