Working together for Local, Common Sense Conservation
As of 2021, MACD and SWCDM have merged under MACD. All of the programs and resources offered through SWCDM are now offered through MACD. We ask for your patience as we update the content of our websites throughout this merger process, and will maintain some aspects of the SWCDM website while we work on building the new MACD website.

Each year, MACD’s member districts are invited to craft and submit resolutions that will help direct the advocacy and policy work of the Association on specific natural resource issues. Through the resolution process, districts are able to provide the Association with direct input on natural resource topics of high interest or concern at the local, regional, state, and/or national level.
MACD has added resolutions from 2005 onward to this website. You can browse our resolutions library by clicking below.
