Be a part of our Local Conservation Work Group!


The Kalamazoo Conservation District (KCD) in partnership with the USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) announces their Local Work Group (LWG) meetings. LWG meetings are formed to gather input from constituents and conservation leaders throughout Kalamazoo county to determine natural resources issues and priorities.

The meeting will be held on Thursday, September 21, 2023 between 8:00 am to 10:00 am at the Kalamazoo Conservation District Office (5950 Portage Rd, Ste B, Portage, MI 49002). Coffee and donuts will be provided!

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 the Kalamazoo County Local Work Group Meeting on September 21st.  We are always looking for more partners, volunteers and supporters of the conservation work happening each and every day.


If you would like to be part of this working group, please RSVP below or give us a call at 269-775-3368.
