Sheridan County Conservation District

The function of the Conservation District is to focus and coordinate technical, educational, and financial resources to meet the needs of the local land user. 

The SCCD provides cost-share assistance for livestock and septic system improvements along impaired streams in Sheridan County. Typical cost-share assistance for livestock improvements is between 50% and 80%, depending upon available funding.

The watershed program encompasses the Tongue River, Goose Creek, and Prairie Dog Creek watersheds and includes several activities, with the goal of improving the water resources for Sheridan County. 

Each fall, the SCCD offers low-cost seedling trees and shrubs for conservation purposes. Ordering usually begins in October or November, with seedlings arriving early May.


The SCCD recently released their 2021 spring newsletter. Check it out for more information on 2021 sampling, moss balls, an invasive grasses reporting app, Frog Creek gutter bins, and more!

The 2021 April snowpack report has recently been released by the USDA NRCS. 

This year's watershed meetings have been cancelled. The usual meeting updates can be found in the 2021 newsletters for each watershed.
