WELCOME!

Established in 1946, Kalamazoo Conservation District is an independent county level resource assisting residents, producers, and communities to help resolve natural resource concerns.  The District is self-funded, serving the public with revenue obtained through an annual tree and shrub fundraiser sale, grants, and sponsorshipts/donations..

Kalamazoo Conservation District works with a variety of other local, state, and federal agencies and organizations to accomplish greater results in conservation and protection of our local natural resources.

As a result of the Dust Bowl in the 1920s from severe erosion due to negatively impacting farm practices, Congress established the Natural Resources Conservation Service, which directed money toward programs that would help protect natural resources and empower landowners to become better stewards of the land.  But with no delivery approach for the federal programs, Congress realized that a local level organization was needed to help promote conservation programs available to agricultural landowners.  Thus, a Conservation District Law was established, allowing communities to elect their own county conservation district boards, which would partner with the federal agencies and serve as the storefront and information center for available conservation programs and assistance.
