Marshall-Putnam Soil & Water

Conservation District



MP-SWCD 2018 Spring Sale!


Are your fish numbers low? Are the fish floating on the water instead of swimming around?? Are your flower beds looking a bit….dead? Thinking about a windbreak?? Maybe it’s time to restock, plant and replant!! Contact the Marshall-Putnam Soil & Water Conservation District in Henry for more information.


For fish - all you have to do is determine what you’d like in your pond, place your order and come share in the adventure of restocking your pond. For trees and plants – all you have to do is decide what you think would look best and place an order!
