​Calhoun Conservation District
Your Local Resource for Natural Resource Management

Calhoun Conservation District 

                                 Mission: to serve, educate, and empower our community by providing technical assistance                                       and information to all landowners in all aspects of natural resource management. 

Calhoun Conservation District was created in 1945 and has been the leading local conservation entity for 77 years.  The District partners with environmental and agricultural communities by coordinating conservation projects and programs throughout the Calhoun County and southwest Michigan. Serving as a local source for individual and community assistance in natural resource management and education, the District strives to provide services and programs to meet the needs of the community.   

 

Guided by a locally elected Board of Directors, part-time staff and dedicated volunteers, the District focuses on ground and surface water issues, sustainable agricultural practices, environmental stewardship, education, wildlife habitat, aquatic ecosystems, forestry management, and community projects. A main priority continues to be watershed projects to maintain quality water flow within Calhoun County, by partnering with local, state, and federal agencies.

Programs in 2023 include community educational outreach, an annual tree seedling sale, loan of the no-till drill for planting native wildflowers and grasses to support the CRP Pollinator Program, and youth conservation educational programs .  Property stewardship for the CCD owned and managed properties continues to be a focal point; in addition to the watershed projects with local, state, and federal partnerships.
