About The Conservation District 


The SCD is housed in the Bowman USDA Service Center with our partners, The Natural Resources Conservation Service and the Farm Service Agency.  We also operate out of our "tree shed" on the Bowman County Fair Grounds.  

The soil conservation district is responsible for carrying out a variety of programs for natural resource conservation within the district's boundaries.  The soil conservation district is supported by charges for some services and a portion of mill levy taxes.

The district offers a tree planning and planting service.  With this service we assist customers in selecting varieties of trees, planning layouts, and help with site preparation recommendations to aid in a successful tree planting.  We also offer a machine tree planting and weed barrier fabric installation service along with two no-till drills available for rental.

Conservation education and promotion is also a large part of our work. We work hard to provide educational opportunities in a variety of forms and venues to all ages, urban and rural, throughout our service area. We also sponsor two scholarships for Bowman & Slope county students every spring.  


The Bowman-Slope Soil Conservation District (SCD) is a sub-division of state government. We are managed by a five-member board of Supervisors.  Three members are elected by voting constituents and two are appointed. All board meetings are open to the public and take place at the Soil Conservation office located at:
