Conservation districts in Louisiana were established in 1938 when created by the Legislature.
There are 44 soil and water conservation districts in the state.
Soil conservative services were created in the 1930s following dust storms during which thousands of tons of topsoil were lost. A long period of drought and poor farming practices were blamed for the disaster.
