Following the American Dust Bowl in the 1930s, the need to conserve natural resources became an important focus in the United States, leading to the 1935 formation of the Soil Conservation Service, now known as the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). To coordinate the conservation efforts of the NRCS and other agencies on a local level, conservation districts were formed nationwide by state governments. In March of 1941, Wyoming Legislature passed an act establishing conservation districts in the state. There are now 34 districts in the state of Wyoming, including the Shoshone Conservation District.
