Conservation district

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Conservation districts are government entities that provide technical assistance and tools to manage and protect land and water resources in U.S. states and insular areas. There are more than 3,000 in the United States. Depending on the state, they may also be known as soil and water conservation districts, soil conservation districts, resource conservation districts, or other similar names. Nationally and within each state, the districts are generally coordinated by non-governmental associations. District borders often coincide with county borders.

The National Association of Conservation Districts

The National Association of Conservation Districts is a non-profit organization that represents America’s conservation districts and the men and women who serve. Conservation districts are local units of government who are required by state law to carry out natural resource management programs. Districts work with landowners and operators who are willing to help them manage and protect land and water resources on all public and private lands in the US.
