Conservation Districts are local units of government consisting of a locally-elected board of directors with small staffs who help landowners and communities with managing their natural resources, including forests, farms, water bodies, and wetlands. Districts originated in the Dust Bowl days to help farmers improve land management practices to conserve critical soils needed for crop production. Districts have evolved to help with forestry, fisheries and wildlife, and other natural resource management issues.
Michigan’s Conservation Districts work to preserve natural resources through education, research, and direct remediation of key areas. Conservation Districts are supported by state, federal, and private grants, and through their own fundraising efforts – especially the annual tree sale. District boards and staff are people committed to conserving our renewable resources.
