Summer is the season for field days, workshops and events at your local Conservation District!
From agricultural to water focused events, Michigan Conservation Districts throughout the state are hosting events of interest to land owners, land managers and those interested in learning more about the great outdoors.
I receive many emails from our Conservation Districts informing me of the events they are hosting locally. From the Water Tours of Benzie, hosted by the Benzie Conservation District to the Hillsdale County NRCS and MAEAP Field Day scheduled for July 25th, our Districts are busy!
Conservation Districts are well known as the local "go to" place for natural resource conservation information and assistance. They have a great understanding of the natural resources and the conservation issues of their area and utilize the many programs and tools at their disposal to address those issues.
I encourage you to get in touch with your local Conservation District (Find Your District on the Web Here) to learn more about what they do, programs they offer, and to participate in one of their summer events. You will be happy that you did!
