2024 Stewardship Week

April 28 - May 5, 2023

May the Forest Be with You, Always

What is Stewardship Week?


NACD Stewardship Week is one of the largest national programs to promote natural resource conservation. Celebrated annually since 1955 between the last Sunday in April and the first Sunday in May, NACD Stewardship Week reminds us of our individual responsibilities to care for natural resources.

Poster Contest

As part of Stewardship Week, the MACD Education committee is running a state-level call for poster submissions. This competition is part of NACD’s National Poster Contest. The top posters in Montana will be entered into NACD’s national poster competition alongside posters from conservation districts across the country. Winners will be announced during NACD’s Annual Meeting in February 2025.
