The Lake DeSmet Conservation District (LDCD) is dedicated to the development and implementation of programs that provide leadership and technical assistance for the conservation of Johnson County’s natural resources, agricultural heritage and resource base, as well as the preservation and enhancement of wildlife habitat. LDCD provides the local voice when addressing natural resource concerns on private and public lands. The Lake DeSmet Conservation District has been a leader in the enhancement of sage grouse habitat. Since 2004, we have worked cooperatively with our local producers to restore sage grouse and sagebrush obligate habitat. The SGI program provided the perfect opportunity to expand our efforts and reach all producers residing in Johnson County by partnering with NRCS, Pheasants Forever and our southern partner, Powder River Conservation District (PRCD). The LDCD administers the SGI field staff position in Buffalo, WY.
