Welcome to the web site of Kent Conservation District! Our mission is to protect and enhance the natural resources of Kent County, Michigan. We accomplish this with voluntary programs available for private landowners in rural and urban areas, such as: habitat restoration assistance, nutrient and pest management plans, the construction of secondary containment and agri-chemical storage facilities, and the development of comprehensive nutrient management plans. Please use the menu at the top of the page to access more information about our programs.

We have extended the deadline for applications for the MAEAP position in Kent.  Please see the MAEAP tab under Programs.  The new deadline to submit your resume is May 14.
