Scope and Contents

From the Series:

This series contains documents related to the CASCD's meetings, activities, and finances, arranged in approximately chronological order. Meeting-related documents include planning documents, correspondence, programs, and minutes. Financial papers include audits, bills, federal and state tax forms, checkbooks, bank statements, dues receipts, and travel expense forms. Also in this series are the Association's newsletters ( Colorado Topsoil, CASCD Newsletter, Colorado Conservator, and The Colorado Conservator) which tended to be published somewhat irregularly over the years.

Worth noting is the oral history project undertaken in 1983-1984 and funded by the Colorado Humanities Program. The documentation produced by the project includes cassette tapes and transcripts of interviews with prominent leaders in the soil conservation movement. The project culminated in a narrated slide show, "Uniting to Save the Soil: The Colorado Association of Soil Conservation Districts and its 40-Year Legacy," also contained in this collection.
