Grand Forks County Soil Conservation District (SCD) is a consolidation of two SCDs which merged in 2006. We are one of only a handful of SCDs in North Dakota which is classified as an urban county, meaning there is a greater population living in cities and towns versus living in a rural setting. Conservation means the protection and wise use of our natural resources. Human actions influence the supplies of our natural resources—soil, water, grasslands, forests, minerals, and wildlife. Conservation also means managing the resources so they may be used wisely by the greatest number of people over the longest period of time. Conservation and enhancement of these resources is the basis for long-term profitability. The Soil Conservation District is a legal subdivision of the State of North Dakota, organized under the North Dakota Soil Conservation Districts Law enacted in 1937 and as later amended. They are organized by vote of the people within the district and are managed by a Board of Supervisors, also elected by the people. Soil Conservation Districts are responsible for carrying out a program of soil and water conservation on cooperating farms within the district boundaries. The Soil Conservation District is supported by charges for some services, and can levy taxes.
