In 1937 President Franklin Roosevelt passed the Colorado Soil Conservation Act as a result of the Dust Bowl. Across the United States, nearly 3,000 conservation districts—almost one in every county—work directly with landowners to conserve and promote healthy soils, water, forests, and wildlife. NACD represents these districts and the more than 17,000 citizens who serve on conservation district governing boards.

 

In 2002 Legislation voted to remove "Soil" from names of Conservation Districts to more accurately reflect  Districts' concerns.  There are 76 Conservation Districts in Colorado.

 

Our long-range plans are to focus on educational assistance, water quality and quantity, noxious weed management and small acreage management. 

In addition to serving as coordinators for conservation in the field, districts: Implement farm, ranch, and forestland conservation practices to protect soil productivity, water quality and quantity, air
