The mission of the Lewis & Clark Conservation District is to provide leadership in the conservation and wise use of soil, water, and related resources.
Conservation Districts in Montana utilize locally-led and largely non-regulatory approaches to successfully address natural resource issues. CDs have a decades-long history of conserving our state’s resources by helping local people match their needs to available technical and financial resources, thereby getting good conservation practices on the ground to the benefit of all Montanans.
The Lewis & Clark Conservation District is located in Lewis & Clark County, Montana. Encompassing the southern portion of the East Front of the Rocky Mountains, forest in abundance and range and crop lands of the Montana plains, the District assists large and small acreage landowners with their management concerns.
Following is an interesting video that the National Association of Conservation Districts put together on the history and the future of CDs.
