​​Mission: Kent Conservation District's 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.  

Kent Conservation District is a local provider of natural resource management services that help our citizens conserve their lands and our environment for a cleaner, healthier, economically stronger Michigan. As a local, special purpose unit of government, Kent Conservation District is governed by a locally elected, five-member board of directors. The guiding philosophy of Michigan Conservation Districts is that local people should make decisions on conservation issues at the local level, with technical assistance provided by government.

Come Learn More: Feel free to attend a monthly Board of Directors meetings (held the 2nd Wednesday of each month at the Grand Rapids field office from 6-7:30pm). The proposed budget of the Kent Conservation District for the fiscal year beginning October 1, 2018, will be presented to the Kent District Board for final approval at the regular monthly meeting at 6:30p.m., on September 12, 2018. The public is invited to comment on the proposed budget at this time. Copies of the proposed budget are available at the Kent District Office, located at 3260 Eagle Park Dr NE, Grand Rapids, Michigan 49525.
