South Big Horn Conservation District

It is the mission of the South Big Horn Conservation District to provide leadership, educate the public, and find solutions to natural resource problems using local grassroots involvement.

The Greybull Valley Conservation District was formed in 1945 following the devastating days of the "Dust Bowl." The South Big Horn and Shell Valley Conservation  Districts were organized in 1947. The Greybull Valley and Shell Valley Conservation Districts combined and became the Greybull-Shell Conservation District in 1968. In 1977, the South Big Horn and the Greybull-Shell Conservation Districts decided to merge and at that time became known as the South Big Horn Conservation District. Recognition must be given for the great work of all those in the district's history. Who they were, what they stood for, and what was accomplished should not be lost.

The public elects residents from within the district, in the general election, to serve as Conservation District supervisors. A board of five supervisors that serve without pay, work with the citizens and government agencies of the District. The Conservation District is responsible for setting local priorities for natural resource concerns. Once priorities are established, the District develops the necessary programs or utilizes existing local, state and federal programs to address resource concerns.
