The LaGrange County SWCD offers various types of services for youth as well as adults. Some of the services we offer include:
Post Pounder Rental:
The post pounder can be rented by calling the office to schedule. Certain times of the year are booked several weeks in advance, so be sure to call ahead of time to ensure it's availability. It costs $1.50 per post and delivery is also available for an additional fee. There is a minimum charge of $50.00.
The District sells trees every year during the Spring tree sales. If you would like to be on the mailing list please call the office at 260-463-3166 x3. We are starting work on selecting the species we will provide and will provide a link to the order form when it becomes available.
We have PINK marking flags available for purchase (100 for $10.00) in the LaGrange County SWCD office.
LaGrange Co. Plat books
We have 2019 plat books available at the SWCD office for $25.00.
The District also sells Geo-textile fabric for $0.18 per square foot. Sold in 15 linear feet, this fabric is used to stabilize heavy use areas such as driveways, construction sites, and other heavy use projects.
Pasture Walks on Management :
The District holds Pasture Walks at intensive rotational grazing operations monthly, May-October, on the 2nd Thursday of each month. We have had a successful year for 2020 and are looking for pasture walk hosts for the 2021 year. Please contact the office if you are interested in hosting.
Northern Indiana Grazing Conference:
The Northern Indiana Grazing Conference was held February 7&8 of 2020 and was a huge success. We hope to see you there next year, on February 5 and 6, 2021.
Rule 5's are required by Indiana's Construction Erosion Control ordinance and applies to any construction site that will disturb one acre or more. The District reviews all Rule 5 plans for adequacy. Contact the office for more information.
