In Itasca and Aitkin counties, I have 30 years experience employed by the Soil Conservation Service. While employed with them, I worked with private and public sectors on forestry, water quality, wetland and agricultural natural resource concerns providing solutions to complicated problems. These same resource concerns are high priority for the Itasca Soil and Water Conservation District. I’m a current member of the Itasca County Planning Commission. We evaluate local zoning variance requests and provide recommendations to the County Commissioners.
1. Water Quality: Support programs that maintain or improve water quality. 2. One Watershed One Program: This overarching program addresses the technical and administrative components of all high priority resource areas. 3. Aquatic Invasive Species: Critical to keep programs that keep AIS out of public waters.
The SWCD provides one stop assistance for a multitude of resource concerns such as providing cost share funding for repairing shoreline erosion. As a SWCD supervisor, I would explore additional programs that would provide more cost share funding for high priority projects.
The SWCD can collaborate with major players on climate change strategies. One quick example would be to start recommending planting tree species that are more adaptive to warmer climates.
