Swan Lake Watershed Conservation District

The Swan Lake Watershed Conservation District (SLWCD) was formed in 2006 and covers an area of 4,234 km². The district is located along the Saskatchewan border, between the Duck Mountains and the Porcupine Hills. The SLWCD includes the municipalities of Swan Valley West, Minitonas-Bowsman, and Mountain, as well as the Town of Swan River.

The conservation district delivers incentive based programming to address land and water issues, including stream bank stabilization, grassed waterway construction and repair, abandoned well sealing, well head protection, private well water testing, tree planting, and fisheries and riparian enhancement. The SLWCD plays an important role in environmental education initiatives; it works closely with its local schools and Envirothon team. The conservation district has completed its integrated watershed management plan for the Swan Lake Watershed.
