Welcome to the LPCD Website

Lake of the Prairies Conservation District is a non-profit grassroots organization that works with landowners and producers to ensure the protection and preservation of the natural resources within our watershed.


A watershed is comprised of the geographic area drained by a river and its tributaries. Therefore, by definition, a watershed is sensitive to the effects upstream land use activities have on downstream residents and natural systems. The whole system is connected environmentally, economically and socially through this concept as the ramifications from one area’s land use choices can be detected in downstream areas.

LPCD uses this concept as its reference point for both district boundaries and programming and services The district seeks to identify areas and land use activities that demonstrate high risk for negative impacts on downstream water quality and quantity. Our Strategic Plan outlines our Vision, Mandate and Mission Statements, as well as providing an in-depth look at our District Profile, Philosophy, Goals & Objectives and finally, our Mission Strategies.

We invite you to explore the incentive-based programs we offer to landowners and producers within our district (Please refer to the District Map to determine if your land is within our boundaries).
