NACD Celebrates 75th Anniversary With Vilsack, Duckworth

Mon, 26 Jul 2021 08:54:01 CDT

NACD Celebrates 75th Anniversary With Vilsack, Duckworth Today, the National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) celebrated its 75th anniversary in Chicago, Illinois, where the association was founded in 1946.

“I think the founding members of NACD had incredible foresight when creating our organization to realize that our strength lies in collaboration, in championing the message of locally-led conservation on a national level with a unified voice,” NACD President Michael Crowder said.

The national association hosted a 75th Anniversary Celebration at the Hancock Center, which featured remarks from United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Secretary Tom Vilsack and U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth, as well as a historical presentation from Soil and Water Conservation Society (SWCS) Historian Joe Otto.

“NACD and NRCS have forged an important bond that has helped to deliver conservation to millions of acres across our country, and over the years much has been done to reduce soil loss, to improve water conservation, and to advance the conservation of natural resources and wildlife across America’s working lands,” Secretary Vilsack said. “Happy 75th anniversary, and please know that all of us at USDA look forward to working with you to advance conservation for years to come.”

“Creating real change starts at the local level,” Senator Duckworth said. “The work groups like NACD do with leaders in agriculture, conservation, environment, education and industry to promote responsible management and conservation of natural resources helps to make our country a better place.”

“I also applaud NACD’s commitment to community outreach, efforts to work with underserved communities, and its commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion,” she said. “I want to congratulate the National Association of Conservation Districts on their 75th anniversary and thank them for giving these districts a platform to be heard.”

“Although many things in our society have changed in the last 75 years, NACD is still leading with that foundational mentality all these years later: as the national voice for all conservation districts, supporting voluntary, incentive-driven natural resource conservation programs that benefit all citizens,” President Crowder said. “And I can say that we’ll continue to carry on that message over the next 25, 50, 75 years and beyond.”
