Cortland County SWCD is your local conservation and natural resource agency.  Feel free to peruse our website to see just a sampling of the types of information and services SWCD can provide.  Our programs and services are based on the needs and interests of county residents and communities, so feel free to contact us if you have questions or ideas!  Technical assistance is available free of charge and our programs are strictly voluntary.  SWCD is non-regulatory based on our belief that the most successful conservation is borne from self-motivation and personal stewardship ethics.            -Amanda
