Find Your Local District

Get Involved

People are the key to conservation district success, whether serving as officials on district boards of directors or volunteering in a river cleanup. Local people offer extensive expertise and personal interest regarding the best ways to take care of their own natural resources. This effective management of natural resources at the local level reduces the need for outside intervention and regulation.

Among the things you can do:

 

Become a conservation district supervisor

Supervisors are the volunteer public officials overseeing the work of each district and identifying local natural resources needs as well as priorities in their communities.

Volunteer

Districts need help with everything from planting seedlings in wetland restoration projects to filing in the office. Contact your district to let them know you are willing to help.

Practice Good Stewardship

You can improve your corner of the world by composting food scraps and lawn clippings in your backyard, conserving green areas in your urban neighborhood. Ask your district for assistance.
