MINNESOTA, Fillmore SWCD — Donna Rasmussen, administrator for the Fillmore Soil and Water Conservation District, was recently recognized by the Minnesota Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts at the group’s annual convention in Minneapolis.
Rasmussen has been administrator for Fillmore SWCD since 2008. In addition to those duties and managing a staff of eight there, she also serves as chairwoman of the regional Basin Alliance for the Lower Mississippi in Minnesota.
“You take the opportunities as they come along,” Rasmussen said. “You do end up being involved in a lot of things but they interconnect.” That interconnection helps the different groups coordinate and share resources and information.
“By doing that, sometimes people come to you with funding or opportunities,” Rasmussen said.
