The Conservation District uses feedback from landowners to do our long range planning. Please take 1-5 minutes to fill out the survey!
The CD office is co-located with the USDA NRCS, FSA and Rural Development offices and the aged building that we're all housed in is undergoing some much needed, long overdue renovations. This week, they are re-flooring and hopefully painting the CD office, so the phones are all unplugged and the internet is down. Therefore, staff are all working off-site. If you need to reach any of us, you may do so via email: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Thanks and have a nice week!

The Conservation District will utilize the feedback we receive as we look at program development, budgeting, collaboration with other partner organizations such as the NRCS, and in our planning revisions for our long-range-plan.
