NACD RESPONDS TO ZINKE’S CONFIRMATION AS INTERIOR HEAD
WASHINGTON, March 1, 2017 – The National Association of Conservation Districts looks forward to working with the newly confirmed head of the Interior Department, Ryan Zinke, to meet the needs of this nation’s 3,000 conservation districts.
“Conservation districts and their state associations work day in and day out to put conservation on the ground, often partnering with Interior agencies to meet local resource goals on private and public lands,” NACD President Brent Van Dyke said. “We look forward to working with Secretary Zinke and continuing our close working relationship with the department.”
The National Association of Conservation Districts is the non-profit organization that represents the nation’s 3,000 conservation districts, their state associations and the 17,000 men and women who serve on their governing boards. For more than 70 years, local conservation districts have worked with cooperating landowners and managers of private working lands to help them plan and apply effective conservation practices.
