About Conservation Districts of Iowa (CDI) & Iowa’s Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCDs)

Soil and water conservation is crucial to the state of Iowa because healthy soil is necessary to allow for continued agriculture production in Iowa. Iowa’s farmers will play a significant role in producing the 70% increase in food needed to feed the world’s population by 2050. Because it takes 500 years for 1” of topsoil to form, conserving Iowa’s soil, which is some of the best in the world, is vital. In addition to food, crops producing ethanol decreases our nation’s dependence on foreign oil. Agriculture production is essential to Iowa’s economy because the industry employs many Iowans. Clean water is important to Iowa as well, for drinking and recreation. Clean water and natural areas for wildlife are valuable to Iowans and important for Iowa’s tourism industry. Also, what we do in Iowa impacts our downstream neighbors.

Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCD) were formed across the nation in response to the devastation of the 1930s Dust Bowl, which brought ecological, economic, and social misery to tens of thousands of Americans as a result of farming the land without conservation. Districts were charged with restoring and protecting the soil to ensure continued productivity, and they did so by encouraging the use of an array of conservation practices. Today, there are 3,000 Soil and Water Conservation Districts and 17,000 Commissioners across the nation. In Iowa alone, there are 100 Soil and Water Conservation Districts and 500 Commissioners. Every county has a Soil and Water Conservation District and all Iowans, urban as well as rural, are served by them. Soil and Water Conservation Districts provide Iowans with education, technical assistance and funding to put conservation on agricultural and urban land.

Conservation Districts of Iowa is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to inform, educate and lead Iowans through our local soil and water conservation districts to promote conservation of natural resources. CDI implements its mission by providing support to SWCDs and Iowans through numerous programs, projects and events.
