The Gunnison Conservation District is a local grassroots organization created to address conservation concerns of landowners in the District and encourage the protection and enhancement of natural resource management.

The Gunnison Conservation District was chartered on June 1, 1956. The District encompasses most of Gunnison County, the northwestern one-third of Saguache County, and the northern one-third of Hinsdale County, comprising approximately 2,127,000 acres of private, state, and federal lands. The Gunnison Conservation District is the local unit of government through which the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) administers technical assistance and facilitates cost-share programs to local area ranchers and landowners. The District exists for the sole purpose of promoting and facilitating soil, water, and wildlife conservation, management, and improvement practices on private land in the Gunnison Basin area.
