Today, the National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) announced the formation of a Climate Action Task Force to assess current and emerging climate policy opportunities and make recommendations to NACD’s leadership that utilize the technical knowledge and expertise of conservation districts as part of the U.S. solution to the global climate crisis.

“Conservation districts provide an invaluable service in all communities across the U.S. and stand ready to amplify the work yet to be done for the strength of our nation in three important areas: climate mitigation, wildfire preparedness and environmental services,” said NACD President Michael Crowder.

President Crowder selected NACD Immediate Past President Tim Palmer to lead the task force, which combines the unique experiences and perspectives of diverse, nationally leading conservation experts on natural resource systems, including cropland, grassland, forestry, tribal lands and urban agriculture, across all parts of the American landscape, to propose new ideas for how conservation districts and our partners can support communities in this area of increased need and opportunity.
