Advocating for Conservation

An important role of the Kansas Association of Conservation Districts is to monitor legislative issues and advocate for measures that strengthen conservation efforts in the state. A key element of this advocacy is the strong partnership among federal, state, and local organizations committed to the conservation of Kansas natural resources.
