Hello, my name is Jeff Berens, and I am the District Technician 1 at the Lincoln County Soil and Water Conservation District.  I grew up in Benson, Minnesota, and went to school at Valley City State University and North Dakota State University, where I obtained degrees in Fisheries and Wildlife Sciences and Environmental and Conservation Sciences.  I started working for the Lincoln SWCD in January 2016, and specialize with the Buffer Initiative, Minnesota Agricultural Water Quality Certification Program, and other related conservation programs.  General position duties and responsibilities that I have include working with cooperators, promoting programs, and utilizing GIS/GPS tools to help prepare plans and designs, mapping and inventory.  Wildlife and the outdoors have always been a big part of my life, and I enjoy having the opportunity to help sustain these resources for future generations.  If you have any questions for me, don’t be afraid to ask, and I look forward to helping you achieve your conservation goals. 

The Lincoln SWCD is excited to have a new employee on board.  Jeff will be a great asset to the SWCD.  Stop by the Lincoln SWCD office and meet Jeff.

The Lincoln Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) was organized July 3, 1944.  The SWCD works with landowners in both rural and urban settings to carry out a program for the conservation, use and development of soil, water and related resources.  The district is a political subdivision of the state and is governed by a five member Board of Supervisors.  The board sets policy, hires employees, and is responsible to see that the operations of the district are run effectively and according to the law and rule.

The SWCD's goal is to provide quality and accurate information.  All information within this site, though, is subject to change and should only serve as a guideline for the SWCD's services and procedures.  For the most current and accurate information, please contact the SWCD at 507.694.1630 Ext 3.
