Welcome to the web site of Kent Conservation District! Our mission is to protect and enhance the natural resources of Kent County. We accomplish this with voluntary programs available for private landowners in rural and urban areas, such as: habitat restoration assistance, Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assistance (MAEAP) verification, Farm Bill Programs, and technical assistance to all landowners. Please use the menu at the top of the page to access more information about our programs.
Wow, spring is coming fast! Check the native Michigan Spring 2016 Native Plant Sales page to see some great Michigan Trees, Shrubs and Ground cover we are offering for your spring projects. Like us on Facebook to receive event updates.
New dates to consider:
February 23 we will be at the Rockford Brewing Company to talk about Invasive Species Control. Check out the brochure, and invite your friends!
On March 10, from 8:30a to 3:30p we will be holding an invasive species workshop, offering continuing credits, and packed full of information for your staff. Vern Stephens, retired Air Force pilot and DNR Grassland Specialist (retired) is an excellent source of information. You will enjoy a day packed with information, bring your notebook! Lunch included.
