body of state government responsible for the conservation of soil and
water resources within its boundary.
The major function of the District is to analyze natural resources needs
and to design and implement a program to solve soil and water
Through the District, the challenges are solved largely by landowners
themselves, with technical and educational assistance furnished by the
District and other conservation partners.

District Law, the District was organized by local landowners January
28th, 1949 and is administered by a board of five supervisors elected by
owners and occupiers of land within the District.
The supervisors meet monthly to conduct the District’s business and
attend other meetings representing the District. Supervisors receive no
monetary compensation for their work.
