Conservation Districts are "unique" local units of State Government that utilize state, federal and private sector resources to solve today's conservation problems. Created to serve as stewards of water and soil resources, they take an ecosystem approach to conservation and protection of our resources.

The District's projects are as diverse as the landscape we serve; everything from forestry to water protection, agriculture to energy, improving wildlife habitat on land and water, and even invasive species and recreational resource protection. We continue to expand our scope to meet the needs and environmental challenges of our community.

The Dickinson Conservation District has resource professionals available to assist you and your conservation needs: foresters, resource technicians, water quality specialists, and administrators.
​Contact us for more information
The Dickinson Conservation District operates off of grants awarded, annual tree sale, and donations from generous members of the community. To keep us running and servicing the good people of Dickinson County, please consider a donation
