The SWCD also distributes the Indiana Department of Natural Resources tree order forms each fall for orders that will be delivered the following spring.  Orders are placed directly with the IDNR nursery and payment must be made prior to being placed on the agency pick-up list.  The SWCD provides the 3rd party agency pick up service from the nursery to our office location (117 W. Harvest Road, Bluffton) for $5.00 per bundle which is payable to the SWCD at the time the customer picks up the trees.

The Wells Co. Soil & Water Conservation District meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. at the NRCS/SWCD office, 117. W. Harvest Road, Bluffton, IN.

The agenda is posted at the office location.  The meetings are open to the public, and the public is encouraged to attend.
