— Our Mission —

Soil Conservation Districts were formed by Congress in response to the Dust Bowl disaster of the 1930s. Each district consists of volunteer landowners helping other landowners to conserve the land. There are 76 Conservation Districts in Colorado. The Fort Collins Conservation District was established in 1945 and is currently supervised by a board of volunteers who are local landowners. The District works to maintain and improve water, soil, and wildlife resources by providing technical and educational resources to support conservation practices.
