Day County ConservationDay County Conservation District is located in Northeastern South Dakota. In 1939 technicians of the Soil Conservation Service assisted the County Extension Agent in establishing several demonstration farms in Day County. This educational work helped to establish the Day County Soil Conservation District. The Day County Land Use Planning committee initiated the definite steps that resulted in the organization of the district. The State Soil Conservation Committee created the district on January 14, 1942. Day County offers some of the best fishing, hunting and outdoor activities for residents and visitors to the area all within 30 minutes of the county seat of Webster. Even though fishing is probably the most popular activity in the Glacial Lakes area, there are other activities such as fairs, festivals, and museums. We are also home to the Waubay National Wildlife Refuge, Blue Dog State Fish Hatchery and Edgar McFadden.
