The mission of Mosca-Hooper Conservation District is to provide leadership in natural resource management for the betterment of all present and future residents of the district through education and example.


Mosca-Hooper Conservation District, a county-wide district in Alamosa County, was established on June 7, 1943. The district has a conservation history of 70+ years.

Mosca Hooper-Conservation District encompasses all the land in Alamosa County except for those areas that had been previously excluded.  Total acreage within the District is 462,000 acres. There are 317,000 that are private and 145,00 that are public lands.


The Mosca-Hooper Conservation District is proud of its achievements. The board of supervisors is a diverse group of stake-holders that come from all reaches of the agriculture community. This combination of experience and talent helps to ensure sound management of natural resources within the district.


The board has a tradition of service—not just to local producers—but to small-acre landowners and various agriculture and education entities throughout Alamosa County, the San Luis Valley, and the State of Colorado as well.
