South Dakota Association of Conservation Districts

Promoting Conservation Today, For Tomorrow

Every man, woman, and child in South Dakota enjoys the benefits of our natural resources. We drink clean water, eat safe food, breathe clean air, and enjoy abundant wildlife; in general, we live in a healthy environment.

Many of us take this for granted and assume it will always be this way. We often forget that, as we enjoy the benefits of nature, we are also responsible for seeing that our children and grandchildren have the same opportunities.

It is easy to say we are responsible, but how do we carry out that responsibility? What can we as individuals do?

Together with the South Dakota Conservation Commission and input from more than 230 groups, the South Dakota Association of Conservation Districts has drafted "Today and Tomorrow: A Vision to Conserve South Dakota's Natural Resources."

The framework created by this vision provides opportunities for and encourages all South Dakotans to voluntarily participate in caring for our natural resources. This website provides information to help accomplish seven broad goals that take a common sense approach to natural resource management.

We believe accomplishing these goals will ensure sustainability of South Dakota's natural resources, ensuring their availability for home, industry, agriculture, recreation, and other uses. It will lead to a cleaner environment and a better quality of life for all citizens.

We encourage you to explore our website and learn more about natural resource conservation in South Dakota. Contact your local conservation district to find out how you can get involved in your community and county. Let us know how we can help you.
