The Douglas County Conservation District is helping people help the land by promoting projects through education to further the long-term sustainable use of natural resources balancing the needs of agriculture and urban growth. The district is governed by a Board of seven Supervisors who are volunteers.
Public Board Meetings are once per month on the fourth Monday, in our office at 7519 East HWY 86, Franktown, Colorado 80116. We are located on the northeast corner of hwy 83 and hwy 86 in Franktown. Our office is in the same building as the Post Office. Enter the door marked "7519" west of the Post Office door. The meetings begin at 6:00pm.
We work with all District residents to help them discover the value of conservation as it relates to their profits, their lives and their children's future.
To achieve these goals, we work closely with landowners to assist in recommending conservation practices such as windbreaks including specific seedling tree species selection, grass seed plantings to stop erosion, proper grazing management, controlling noxious weeds, and providing products to insure successful plantings. In some cases financial assistance may be available to help achieve your conservation goals. We also conduct several public seminars on various topics.
We work closely with educators and children to teach our young people about conservation. We offer scholarships for High School students to attend Conservation "Camp Rocky" as well as College tuition scholarships to students pursuing a career in an agricultural related field, and adopt classrooms which provide conservation curriculum materials to schools.
