Helping people help the land throughout Dickey County in Southeastern North Dakota!

Attention - How has the recent COVID 19 pandemic affected your local USDA Service Center? At this time, the Service Center doors will be locked and there will be NO producer access to the building. That being said, the office is still staffed each day. So please call 701-349-3653 for all Service Center business and we will be happy to assist our local producers as efficiently and safely as possible.

The James River Soil Conservation District provides services to producers interested in including conservation practices into their daily operations in Dickey County.  The Soil Conservation District encourages and assists all producers to conserve their natural resources.  Working in cooperation with the Natural Resources Conservation Service, services are provided throughout the county.
