Created to serve as stewards of natural resources, Michigan's Conservation Districts take an ecosystem approach to conservation and protection. Conservation Districts provide conservation programs and services, as well as linking land owners and managers to other programs and opportunities available.
Conservation Districts continually scan the needs of their local communities, working in partnership with others involved in conservation to set local priorities, develop action plans, and engage in programs and opportunities to address natural resource issues. 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 the Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program and the Forestry Assistance Program to water quality and wildlife programs. Conservation Districts continue to expand into diverse areas of natural
resource management, rising to meet the
environmental challenges of their local communities.
