York Conservation District

The York County Conservation District is the county government office devoted to assisting residents with their natural resource and environmental concerns.

The District was founded in 1938 when 554 farmers signed a petition requesting assistance for protecting the natural resources of York County. Today, we not only assist farmers, but also all county residents, by promoting the maintenance, improvement, and wise use of land, water, soil and other related natural resources within the County. We accomplish this mission through educational programs and the administration of laws and regulations for the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture and the State Conservation Commission.

Sixty six of Pennsylvania’s sixty seven counties have a Conservation District office responsible for advocating natural resource conservation. Since the beginning, the office has been directed by a board of citizen concerned about the environmental welfare of our County, State and Country. That local leadership continues today as we seek to partner with state and federal programs to protect and preserve York County’s natural resources


The York County Conservation District is committed to the improvement and protection of our environment and the wise use of our County’s diverse natural resources.

To achieve that vision, The York County Conservation District will be proactive providing conservation education, technical services, and financial assistance, in order to enable the citizens of York County be good stewards of our natural resources.

Our Motto
Serving our County, Conserving our resources, Preserving our environment.
