Welcome to the Kalamazoo Conservation District

Notice for a Local Work Group meeting - we hope you can join us!

Dear Kalamazoo County Residents,


The Kalamazoo Conservation District (KCD) in partnership with the USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) announces their Local Work Group (LWG) meetings. The meetings will be held on Friday September 16, 2022 at 9:30 am AND Wednesday September 28, 2022 at 11:00 am at The Kalamazoo Conservation District Office (5950 Portage Rd, Ste B, Portage, MI 49002).


LWGs are formed to gather input from constituents and conservation leaders throughout each county to determine natural resources issues and priorities.

Some of the items that will be discussed include:

• The work and successes that have already taken place in the county
• Seek to identify the best investments that can be made to address natural resource problems
• Priority and ranking criteria that will be used to address local issues
• Discuss strategies for strengthening conservation education and awareness, and other issues impacting conservation organizations.

If you are interested in conservation programs, practices and local efforts — get involved!  Please mark your calendar and make plans to attend one of the Kalamazoo County Local Work Group Meetings.  If you are not able to attend either of the meetings, please send us your comments to kalamazooconservation@gmail.com. We are always looking for more partners, volunteers and supporters of the conservation work happening each and every day.


Thank you,

Elizabeth Rochow
