This 10-minute mini-documentary details the inception of America's conservation districts following the Dust Bowl of the 1930s and follows them throughout the ages as they've grown and strengthened from coast to coast.

The National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) provides a unified, national voice for the more than 3,000 conservation districts across the United States. NACD’s member-driven board of directors selects conservation policy priorities which are used to develop and review environmental and natural resources legislation and to secure adequate federal funding for natural resources conservation programs.
