Summary

Local Conservation Districts in the state of Montana may be formed by approval of the Department of Natural Resources and Conservation and local referendum, to take place following a petition by 10% of qualified local electors. When formed, Conservation Districts function as governmental subdivisions of the state and may exercise public powers, such as by adopting and implementing regulations regarding local conservation, water and land use practices, and erosion control.

The Department of Natural Resources and Conservation is tasked with encouraging the formation of Conservation Districts, offering assistance to Districts in carrying out policies and programs, and coordinating programs between Districts.
