Helping Our People

The Muscogee Nation's Natural Resource
Conservation District is a self-governing
entity with a mission to increase the
number of farmers and ranchers with
self sustaining units. Our primary focus is
on individually-owned operations on
Restricted Indian Lands and U.S.A. Trust
Lands.

Protect Our Land

Conservation

We must all work together. The Creek
Nation Natural Resource Conservation
District relies on many partners to help
set conservation goals, work with people
on the land, and provide services.

Is The Work Of Many

Overgrown Land

Unproductive

Many original allotments are overgrown
and have become unproductive. To
educate Creek citizens about natural
resources is to empower them to
utilize and protect the Indian land that
they inherited from the original
allottees.

Overgrown Restricted Lands

Air

Air is a natural resource required by people, plants, and animals to sustain life. Air quality can be directly impacted by operations conducted on farms and ranches. Good conservation practiced on farms and ranches can help curb negative effects on air quality and atmospheric change.

Water

Water is a natural resource vital to the sustainability of life for plants and animals. Although water is considered renewable, it must be cared for and properly managed so that it can be consumed by crops, livestock, and people. Good conservation practices help ensure that freshwater sources remain consumable and recycled water has positive effects on the environment.

Soil

Healthy soil plays a critical role in sustaining an abundant food supply for communities around the world. Furthermore, good soil health supports important conservation efforts such as improving the quality of water we drink and the we air breath. Increased energy efficiency and a reduction in Greenhouse gas emissions are also benefits of healthy soil.

Sunlight

Sunlight is a basic element of life. Sunlight is a natural resource needed by many lifeforms on Earth for survival. Sunlight is used by plants for photosynthesis. Animals rely on sunlight for warmth and nutrients. Sunlight helps people get the Vitamin D they need.
