Public Awareness

What agencies provide public outreach to inform the public of the conservation efforts available and that take place in South Dakota? What are the outreach efforts?

SD Association of Conservation Districts (SDACD) provides Envirothon programs for high schools.

Conservation districts provide educational opportunities such as Ag in the Classroom.

SDDA and SDACD conduct annual surveys to determine outreach materials needed to expand conservation awareness in SD citizens. SDDA and SDACD develop new outreach materials quarterly based on the topics identified in the annual survey.

SDDA and SDACD maintain a list of events (county fairs, state fair, water festivals, home shows) on their websites.
