Conservation District

The Conservation District is the primary local unit of government responsible for the conservation of soil, water and related natural resources within the county boundary. Kansas Conservation Districts are political subdivisions of state government charged with this vital role. Funding comes from county and state allocations, with some districts generating funds by providing conservation goods and services.

Conservation Districts address a wide range of environmental concerns.  Those interests include agricultural and urban erosion and sediment control, water quality, water quantity, range and pasture management, fish and wildlife habitat, and other natural resource management issues. Conservation Districts work cooperatively with local citizens to solve local conservation problems. This benefits both the agricultural community and society as a whole. Clean water and productive soil are basic to our quality of life now and in the future.  

Conservation Districts provide information and education to landowners, schools and the general public about soil and water conservation issues.
