Our Goals

Water Quality and Quantity

Water is the lifeblood of the West. The quantity and quality of water is extremely important for the health of our communities and ecosystem. We support increased water storage, improved irrigation water management practices, and appropriate riparian habitats.

Sustainable Land Use

As population increases, natural and agricultural landscapes are continually manipulated. We engage with our community to provide landowners information and resources to steward their diverse properties.

Integrated Pest Management

Various pests can damage our fragile ecosystem and affect the quality of our land. We encourage and assist landowners in controlling noxious weeds. We advocate for pollinator protection and appropriate prairie dog management.

Forest Health and Watershed Management

In partnership with the National Association of Conservation Districts and the NRCS, we address resource concerns on forested private lands. We provide technical assistance to complete forest assessments, develop forest management plans, identify and secure a variety of funding sources, and implement projects.

Agricultural & Conservation Education

We want everyone - especially our children - to know where their food comes from. Agricultural and conservation education are the keystones of sustainability for tomorrow's leaders.
