Carbon Conservation District

The District Board Members are volunteers that set the goals and priorities of the District.  Our Board is comprised of seven (7) members - three (3) farmers, three (3) public, and one (1) county Commissioner member.  These seven members are:  Josiah W.H.

Today the District is a full time operation. Six (6) full time employees work for the Carbon District in different capacities.   Chris Storm is the District Manager, Audrey Wargo is the District Secretary and Rebecca Cunfer is the District Technician, located at the Conservation District Office in Lehighton.  Susan Gallagher is the Chief Naturalist that heads the Carbon County Environmental Education Center, located near Mauch Chunk Lake Park on East White Bear Drive in Summit Hill.  Regina (Jeannie) Carl is the Naturalist and Franklin Klock is the Program Assistant. 

Approximately 60% of the district's operating funds are obtained from the county with about 20% from the State of Pennsylvania.  The balance of the funding is generated by fees and fund raising activities.
