For over 70 years, the conservation district has worked with local landowners, farmers, governmental agencies, and other organizations dealing with environmental problems. We have programs to assist people with forestry, water quality, and wildlife management concerns. We also have educational programs that are presented to all fifth grade students in the county.
The district board meets at the District Office at 700 South Main Street, Suite 120-C. Meetings are held on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 9:30 a.m. The public is encouraged to attend. Please check Events Listing to verify the time, date, and location.
