SWCS International Conference shines light on conservation progress

Cultivating a legacy of conservation is the focus of this year’s Soil and Water Conservation Society International Conference.

Clare Lindahl (pictured above) is the organization’s CEO, and tells Brownfield farmers and ranchers play a critical role enhancing natural resources.

“Farmers face it all the time,” she said. “They see the weather change, they see all of the things that they have to come up against, and so it is really those conservation practices that can protect their fields from ever changing weather.”

She says there’s been an increase in regenerative ag practices.

“I think it is an exciting time to be part of this industry and there is no doubt that there are farmers doing incredible things leading in regenerative agriculture and we need more.”

It’s the 78th year of the conference, held in Des Moines, Iowa, which features conservation innovations from researchers, industry leaders, farmers, and students from around the world.
