Finding Ways to Work Together In Conservation Since 1949.

Our Mission

Identify conservation and watershed enhancement needs and offer assistance to landowners and resource managers to meet those needs though technical, financial and educational leadership


The idea of forming local conservation districts was founded in the early 1930’s when dust storms and floods swept the nation and aroused public concern around soil erosion.


The Siskiyou Resource (Soil) Conservation District has been in operation continuously since a referendum and election was held May 17, 1949 approving the creation of this non-taxing special district within Siskiyou County.
