Vision Statement for St. Joseph County Conservation District
2005 and Beyond

The St. Joseph County Conservation District is a locally led agency dedicated to preserving the natural resources that sustain our community and economy. As the county’s primary gateway to conservation programs, the District builds partnerships that serve the public interest. By acting as a program facilitator and clearing house for information, the District helps rural and urban area residents achieve their conservation goals.

Fortunately, natural resources management is already in place in St. Joseph County. In collaboration with community leaders and state and federal experts, the local Conservation District has developed and instituted conservation programs that will help protect our natural resources well into the Future.

The St. Joseph County Conservation District was established in 1949, and is a local entity of state government. It operates under the Soil Conservation District Law, Act 297, PA 1937.

Created to serve as stewards of our natural resources, the St. Joseph County Conservation District provides site-specific, technical assistance and information to landowners in all aspects of resource management.

The St. Joseph County Conservation District is managed by a five member board of directors elected for four year terms. As elected public officials, they are responsible for the operation and management of the Conservation District.
