OKLAHOMA, Pittsburg County CD, Upper Washita CD – …”describe the land where you are from in Oklahoma.”

Bradley Hamilton leads the Pittsburg County Conservation District in southeastern Oklahoma, while Anne York is from the Upper Washita Conservation District in Roger Mills County in western Oklahoma.

“It’s a little bit of everything,” Hamilton said in answer to the question. “We’ve got everything from worst-case to best-case scenarios. We’ve got good farm ground, we’ve got mountain ranges, we’ve got lots of rock. We’ve got the worst clay in the world, we’ve got the best sandy loam. We’re very diverse.”

OKLAHOMA – The training, made possible by the Oklahoma Conservation Commission (OCC), the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), the Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts (OACD) and the OACD Employees, included topics such as Oklahoma’s state funded locally-led conservation cost-share program, director elections and appointments, basic financial management, soil health and other education resources, surplus and sale of equipment and property, pesticide applicator Continuing Education Unit (CEU) Training and several other items.

“The two days of training and continuing education for Conservation District employees far exceeded my expectations,” said Trey Lam of Pauls Valley, who is executive director of the Oklahoma Conservation Commission.

“This was the most complete gathering of local district staff in anyone’s memory. I heard from brand new employees and veteran staff with 40 years of experience who both learned something new. I was so impressed with the dedication of these public servants.”

OKLAHOMA, Cherokee Nation Tribal CD — A new conservation district that will help the Cherokee Nation manage natural resources, secure assistance for conservation projects and encourage conservation practices on tribally-owned land, according to a news release from the USDA.

Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Bill John Baker and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Secretary Sonny Perdue signed an agreement forming the new Cherokee Nation Tribal Conservation District earlier this year.

“The Natural Resources Conservation Service has been a partner for many years, and the creation of a Conservation District was a way to further strengthen that partnership,” Baker said. “With this agreement, we’ll be bringing more financial resources and technical expertise to our conservation and land management efforts.”

The Cherokee Nation Tribal Conservation District is the 46th Tribal Conservation District in the United States. This new tribal conservation district provides a more organized way for the Cherokee Nation and USDA to work together.
