                      rain barrel. They were a super helpful team." BD, Mansfield

Your donation will allow Richland SWCD to provide mini-grants to the public to use toward conservation programs such as rain barrels, rain gardens, and native plants. Your donation will allow Richland Soil and Water Conservation District to provide education through workshops, field days, intern and volunteer programs, community events, and the Annual Celebration. Many of our programs are free or low cost. Additional funding will allow us to continue, strengthen and expand our efforts.
