Idaho Soil Conservation District Day at the Capitol Rotunda
January 21, 2019

Legislators gathered on Tuesday, January 15th in the Capitol rotunda to celebrate Idaho’s soil and water resources. The Soil Conservation Service was created in 1935 as part of the US Department of Agriculture in response to the natural disasters and drought caused by the Dust Bowl in the 1930s. Nearly a decade later, the Idaho Association of Soil Conservation Districts (IASCD) was formed.

Today, IASCD works with 50 independently-run and locally-led conservation districts throughout the state, promoting the locally-led conservation efforts to protect these valuable Idaho natural resources.
