Montana’s Conservation Districts (CD) are political subdivisions of the state and are governed by a board of five supervisors elected by local voters in a general election.  In addition, a municipality that has chosen to be incorporated into a district may appoint up to two urban supervisors to represent urban interests on the board.  This combination of officials representing diverse views has a relatively broad scope of authorities.

Because of their unique characteristics and proven track record, CDs have been entrusted by the state with mandated activities such as implementation of the 310 Law and water reservations.  Also, CDs serve as the local point of contact for numerous federal programs.  This is all in addition to the long-standing CD roles such as educating landowners about sound conservation practices, tree planting and organizing outdoor classroom educational activities for school children.
