The Clark Conservation District was formed
in 1942 and is a legal sub-division of state government
that administers programs to conserve natural resources.
We are self-governed by volunteers who establish priorities
and set policy. The district supervisors are not paid,
but direct the expertise of district employees working
in partnership with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation
The district receives funding from grants
and from the annual plant sale.
The Clark Conservation District promotes conservation
through Best Management Practices (BMPs).
Conservation districts are the states
only grass-roots, conservation delivery system that
identify problems and guide solutions voluntarily.
The Clark Conservation District has a unique opportunity for two qualified citzens to help serve our community and advance conservation practices as a board member of the District.
