Logan County Natural Resource Program
The Logan County SCD received grant dollars for the purpose of improving grassland and cropland practices. Funding is available at a 60% rate to producers in Logan County.

Helping People Help The Land
What is the Logan County Soil Conservation District?
The District has been serving the citizens of Logan County for over 50 years. We are the only local agency whose primary mission is to protect our natural resources. We actively work in cooperation with other agencies to improve water quality, conserve and improve soil, conserve energy and improve the environment for the people of Logan County and - more importantly—for our future generations. Our employees are supervised by a locally elected board that serves as a liaison to state and federal agencies. The District IS your local voice for conservation at the state and national levels!
What does the District do for me?
The District is an important asset to the County because it provides many valuable services:
Trees: The most visible function of the District is to protect our County’s landscape by assisting with the purchasing of and planting trees to protect roads, cropland, farmsteads, water bodies, and some urban areas. The District offers this unique service at a low cost. They help find cost-share dollars so that anybody who wants trees can get them, regardless of their financial situation.
Education: Every year the 8th Graders in Logan & McIntosh Counties attend an Eco Education Tour. The kids love the hands-on tours where they learn intensively about soils, water quality, wildlife, plants, and other natural resource science. The District also sponsors Stewardship Week for Logan County churches and the Keep ND Clean Poster Contest.
Soil Conservation, Water Quality, Wildlife Habitat Improvement Practices. The District is actively involved in the design and application of conservation practices that improve cropland, grazingland, forestland, and wildlife land in Logan County.
