Conservation Districts are the necessary connection between landowners and the agencies that provide technical and financial assistance as well as the necessary compliance programs that will solve our natural resource problems. Working with local landowners, conservation districts can coordinate the mixture of technical assistance and available cost sharing as well as information and education necessary to encourage good stewardship of our environment.
Clark Conservation District (CCD) was established in 1942 and is a legal sub-division of state government that administers programs to conserve natural resources. We are a non-regulatory agency that was created to bridge the gap between local landowners and state and federal government.
The Clark Conservation District promotes conservation through Best Management Practices (BMPs).
Clark Conservation District's goal is to assist landowners in the development and implementation of conservation practices that protect our county’s valuable natural resources. We can offer technical and financial assistance for:
- Wildlife habitat improvement
- Fish barrier removal
- Water Quality
- Educational programs
- Agricultural production
- Regulatory compliance
- Erosion control
- Forest Management
- Riparian area protection
- Conservation planning
- Wetland restoration
Our Mission Statement:
The mission of Clark Conservation District is to protect, conserve, and improve the natural resources of the District. Clark Conservation District focuses on water quality, soil management, and critical habitat areas. We also assist landowners in the use and conservation of natural resources. Community members and landowners play a vital role in ensuring the overall success of our District. From planting trees to becoming involved in policy making, individuals can make a difference in their community.
How are we funded?
The District receives funding from grants and from our Annual Native Plant Sale.
Who governs us?
The District is governed by a board of five supervisors, who are all local residents. Three supervisors are elected by residents within the District and two are appointed by the State Conservation Commission. The board may also include an unlimited number of associate members. All of the members’ time and effort serving the District is on a volunteer basis.
