A 4-way partnership Partnerships are critical to advancing good stewardship - conservation. Since 1939, Idaho's traditional conservation partners are:
- Landowners Farmers, ranchers and other landowners are the most important part of the voluntary conservation partnership. Without their willing cooperation, boots-on-the-ground conservation wouldn't get done on private property.
- Local Conservation districts are the boots on the ground helping landowners implement projects. Districts, in addition to state funding, receive financial and in-kind support from cities, counties, other government agencies, and nonprofit groups.
- State The Conservation Commission provides financial and technical support to conservation districts statewide. Offers services and programs including providing low-interest loans to landowners for equipment and projects with conservation benefits.
- Federal The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) also provides technical assistance to districts and landowners.
