Shiawassee Conservation District

The Shiawassee Conservation District was first formed in 1948 by a group of area farmers with the intent of working with local landowners to conserve soil and water resources and to prevent and control erosion. The District is still committed to that goal with a mission to provide for the care, informed usage, and protection of natural resources by creating awareness of conservation issues and by being the leader in providing innovative assistance.

The Shiawassee Conservation District has five (5) Directors that are elected by the constituents of Shiawassee County who possess a valid Michigan ID and are over the age of 18. Directors make all the decisions regarding the District’s programs and activities. The directors hire qualified staff to conduct and carry out the programs and activities that they have approved. These programs provide technical assistance, information, and awareness to assist individuals in the District to properly manage their natural resources.
