Soil and Water Conservation Districts were created as a response to the Dust Bowl ecological disaster that swept the nation. Legislation was enacted to allow landowners to form districts to provide technical assistance for water and land resource management. The Crawford County Conservation District was founded on January 15, 1942. Our mission is to provide leadership to stimulate voluntary application of conservation practices by the local land users through the coordination of services with the Arkansas Conservation Partners. Conservation Districts have evolved from primarily conserving farm land to providing experience and guidance for all landscapes including our urban population.
The district employs one district coordinator to handle all district activities and utilizes volunteers for special projects.
Local Board of Directors
The Crawford County Conservation District is a local governing volunteer board that works with a wide range of conservation partners to provide local technical expertise to help landowners adopt conservation practices on their property. The district is governed by five directors, three of which are elected and two are appointed and all serve three-year terms.
