About MCSCD

The Mercer County Soil Conservation District (MCSCD) is organized as a political subdivision of the State of North Dakota. The governing body is vested in the elected and appointed supervisors, who will work with Natural Resources Conservation Service to assist farmers and ranchers in Mercer County in addressing their Natural Resource concerns. Originally established as two separate districts in 1948 and 1951, the East Mercer County District was organized August 21, 1948, and the West Mercer County District was organized January 28, 1951. On June 10, 1964, an election was held at the Soil Conservation District office for the purpose of consolidating the West and East Districts. On July 21, 1964, they were officially reorganized as the Mercer County Soil Conservation District.
