The Marshall County SWCD was established March 20, 1957. Since then, it has been our mission to encourage the wise use of land and water and to treat these resources according to their needs.

The Marshall SWCD along with Curt Quesnell from the NCOR Guide Service entered into a promotional partnership last fall. One of the first promotion campaigns was at the Thief River Falls Times Home, Sport and Family Show on Sunday, April 15. The seminar began with an education video nd discussion of the rules and regulations boat owners need to know concerning the Clean, Drain and Dry as the boating season draws near. The discussion was positive and many of the boat owners in attendance were unaware of some of the information presented. Watch for the NCOR Guide boat with the Clean, Drain and Dry wrap at Lake of the Woods boat landings, at hot spots on the water, and at area parades and festivals this year.
