NACD Membership

NACD is the national voice for all conservation districts and state and territory associations of conservation districts. NACD supports voluntary, incentive-driven natural resources conservation programs that benefit all American citizens and residents. Now more than ever, NACD needs your district’s active involvement and financial support.

With a strong membership base, NACD is able to provide the following resources and materials:

NACD offers webinars, breakout sessions, workshops, conferences, symposia and online resources to provide cost-effective training, tools and educational materials for conservation districts and state or territory associations. NACD offers a wide range of direct services to districts, including training opportunities such as Conservation Planning Boot Camp and networking and educational opportunities through the Soil Health Champions Network. NACD helps put boots on the ground in districts and pursues ongoing funding to further support districts across the country.

NACD hosts a national directory of all districts, state and territory associations in the country. The national association also recognizes extraordinary leaders in conservation through the Hall of Distinction, annual service awards and the Friends of NACD program.

NACD develops and produces stewardship materials annually centered around a conservation theme, like soil, pollinators, forestry or water. These materials are offered free to districts for electronic download to educate their communities on the importance of conservation and how they can get involved. NACD also operates an online Marketplace filled with materials for district or public purchase, including plaques, award ribbons, trophies, apparel, accessories, service pins and more.

NACD builds strong working relationships with Congress and federal agency partners and works to ensure conservation districts are well-represented when key policy and regulatory decisions are being made. NACD fosters local, state and federal relationships with policymakers and like-minded organizations to advocate for strong conservation programs, appropriations and policies. NACD also issues grassroots advocacy action alerts to our members, providing districts and their supervisors with templates and resources for outreach to their members of Congress.

NACD is committed to soil health practices, preservation of private and public forestland, protection and improvement of water resources, increased technical assistance on all landscapes, habitat restoration, invasive species mitigation, and strong conservation funding in the farm bill.
