DanIndustry News Release

The National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) has congratulated President-elect Donald J. Trump on his election to the presidency and stands at the ready to work collaboratively with his transition team.

In a letter from NACD President Lee McDaniel and President-elect Brent Van Dyke, the association offered its congratulations to President-elect Trump and expressed its hope that voluntary, locally-led conservation will be among his administration’s top priorities.

“The natural resources concerns facing our nation’s diverse landscapes – from our private agricultural working lands to forestlands and urban lands – span political parties and presidential administrations,” McDaniel and Van Dyke wrote. “It is only through a locally-led, voluntary approach that we will achieve the healthy soils and clean water and air we all desire to leave for our future generations.”
