Districts work with land managers, local government agencies and other local interests in addressing resource concerns such as erosion control, flood prevention, water conservation, wetlands, water quality, nonpoint source pollution, wildlife, waste water management and community development.
As a Conservation District, we participate in implementing federal resource programs by cooperating with the US Department of Agriculture through its various agencies, the US Department of the Interior Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management and Office of Surface Mining, as well as the Environmental Protection Agency.
We also work with state conservation, natural resource, water quality and forestry agencies, and county and municipal governments. Districts are a bridge between federal, state and local resource management agencies and local land managers, performing a variety of functions in coordinating and implementing national and state resource programs.

Clark SWCD History
Conservation Districts were envisioned after the Dustbowl of the 1930's as a bridge between federal conservation efforts and local landowners. The Clark SWCD was commissioned in 1942 at the request of the citizens interested in soil and water conservation, land use planning, and flood prevention.
