Thomas County Conservation District

The Conservation District offers many services and opportunities for local producers and landowners, including state cost-share funding opportunities, grass drill rental, technical assistance from the District and local NRCS staff on all conservation projects, and the sale of grass seed, marking flags, drip irrigation equipment, trees, and moisture meters and gypsum blocks.

Conservation districts are citizen-directed; that is, they address a wide range of concerns particular to the residents of their county. They address a multitude of environmental concerns, such as agricultural and urban erosion and sediment control, water quality and quantity, range and pasture management, fish and wildlife habitat, and other natural resource management issues.

Conservation districts provide information to landowners, schools, and the general public about soil and water conservation issues. Many districts have equipment available to rent that promotes conservation, such as grass drills, tree planters, and no-till seeders. Services and activities vary with each conservation district according to local needs and resources.

In addition to local programs, conservation districts administer the state cost-share programs that provide financial assistance to landowners in the implementation of conservation practices. District employees work closely with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and cooperate with other federal and state agencies to help protect and conserve natural resources in Kansas.
