Yuma NRCD

Known in various parts of the country as “soil and water conservation districts,” “resource conservation districts,” “natural resource districts,” “land conservation committees” and similar names, they share a single mission: to coordinate assistance from all available sources -- public and private, local, state and federal -- in an effort to develop locally driven solutions to natural resource concerns.

Conservation districts help:

  • Implement farm conservation practices to keep soil in the fields and out of waterways;
  • Conserve and restore wetlands, which purify water and provide habitat for birds, fish and numerous other animals.
  • Protect groundwater resources;
  • Plant trees and other land cover to hold soil in place, clean the air, provide cover for wildlife and beautify neighborhoods;
  • Help developers and homeowners manage the land in an environmentally sensitive manner; and reach out to communities and schools to teach the value of natural resources and encourage conservation efforts.
