What We Do

The National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) provides a unified, national voice for the more than 3,000 conservation districts across the United States. NACD’s member-driven board of directors selects conservation policy priorities which are used to develop and review environmental and natural resources legislation and to secure adequate federal funding for natural resources conservation programs.


NACD keeps our members informed of the latest conservation news affecting districts and their customers, newly available tools and resources and NACD’s latest activities.
