History of the Conservation Movement - National Association of Conservation districts (NACD)
National Association of Conservation districts (NACD)
When representatives from 32 soil conservation districts met in Washington, D.C. in 1946 and set in motion the process to organize a national association of conservation districts, over 1,600 soil conservation districts had already formed in 48 states.
By forming a national organization in 1946 the districts provided the means to deliver a unified message to policy makers and to better coordinate district activities.
Soon after the establishment of the NACD, the Utah Association of Conservation Districts was created in 1948.
