Michigan's Conservation Districts are "unique" local units of State Government, that utilize state, federal and private sector resources to solve today's conservation problems. The guiding philosophy of all Conservation Districts is that decisions on conservation issues should be made at the local level, by local people, with technical assistance provided by government.

Created to serve as stewards of natural resources, Michigan's Conservation Districts take an ecosystem approach to conservation and protection. Conservation Districts are referred to as “gateways” in their local communities. They provide linkages between land managers and a host of conservation service providers that include state, federal and local governments, conservation organizations, and Internet resources.

Conservation Districts continually scan the needs of their local communities, work in partnership with others involved in conservation to set local priorities, and develop action plans to solve natural resource problems. The delivery of these efforts by Conservation Districts allows citizens to manage their private lands for a cleaner, healthier Michigan. It allows the public a point of access in their communities when questions arise on how to manage natural resources.

Programs carried out by Conservation Districts are as diverse as the landscape in Michigan, ranging from urban agriculture and storm water programs in the Lower Peninsula, to invasive species prevention and control in the Upper Peninsula.  Conservation Districts continue to expand into diverse areas of natural resource management, rising to meet the environmental challenges of their local communities.
