How it all began

Our History

From 1933 to 1940 the southern and central Great Plains region of the United States suffered through a severe and sustained drought known as the Dust Bowl. Crops failed and fields were left unprotected from the unrelenting winds common to the region.  Soil eroded and was blown away, creating massive black dust storms that affected areas as far away as New York.  The storms blotted out the sun and contributed to extremely harsh living conditions.

"Conservation Districts across the nation 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."
