About the Districts 

A conservation district is a legal subdivision of the state of Colorado governed by a board of supervisors elected at large from within the boundaries.  Its boundaries are based on watershed or county lines.  The conservation movement grew out ofthe "Dust Bowl" days in the early 1930's, when soil erosion created an unprecedented ecological diaster.  President Franklin D. Roosevelt recommended that all states pass legislation allowing the creation of conservation districts.  Each district holds regular, open meetings to direct the district's business.  A conservation supervisor is responsible for local soil and water conservation programs, just a elected county officials are responsible for county services or school district boards are responsible for education.
