Gallatin Conservation District is a subdivision of state government and receives the majority of funds through a county tax assessment on real property. A landowner with property valued at $100,000 can expect to pay approximately $1.00 a year in tax to the GCD. A non-paid elected board of five supervisors and two appointed urban supervisors governs district business. The GCD also appoints Associate Supervisors who serve as advisories to the board. The GCD covers all portions of the county except the major portions of the cities of Belgrade and Bozeman. Click here for Bozeman map. Click here for Belgrade map.

The GCD conducts all of its business at public meetings and the public is encourage to attend and to get involved with community activities. Meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month.
