Juniata Conservation District

A board of local citizens who know the local environmental issues manages the Juniata CCD. The Juniata CCD is governed by an eight member Board of volunteer Directors who meet the 4th Tuesday of each month, except December, at 7:30 p.m. at the Ag Service Center in Mifflintown. The public is encouraged and welcome to attend these meetings.

Four farmer directors, three public directors plus a County Commissioner make up the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors are listed on the contacts page of this website.

The effectiveness of the Juniata CCD is due to our ability to network with local, state, and federal agencies to solve local environmental problems. In most cases, the District’s obligations to each agency are outlined in a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), clearly stating the role of each party. Common concerns and activities of Conservation Districts include cooperation between agencies for developing conservation plans for landowners; installation of conservation practices; wildlife management; conservation education; promotional events, erosion and sedimentation controls; administering the Chesapeake Bay Program; administering the Act 38 Nutrient Management Program, administering the Dirt & Gravel Roads Program.


The Juniata County Conservation District was organized in 1957, as a legal subdivision of local and state government, responsible under state law for conservation work within its county boundary lines. The purpose of the district is to: resolve land and water related resource problems through voluntary compliance with landowners; to enlist and coordinate help from all public and private sources that can contribute to accomplishing the district goals; and to make all citizens aware of the inter-relationship between human activities and the natural environment through education.

Partial funding and other support for the development of this website was provided by the Pennsylvania Association of Conservation Districts, Inc. and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection’s Chesapeake Bay Program.
