Genesee Conservation District

Our Work is Life

  Genesee Conservation District is here for you.

Under Governor Whitmer's stay home, stay safe executive order, our services are deemed essential for maintaining critical infrastructure. We are practicing all recommended safeguards for the health and well-being of our staff and the residents in our community. Our offices are closed to the public. Staff are working remotely, and are available by email. 

Contact information may be found here.

Board of Directors meetings are being held remotely due to the pandemic following Michigan's Open Meetings Act and SB 1246. 

Your Partner in Conservation

The Genesee Conservation District strives to improve the quality of life in Genesee County by connecting people with nature while conserving our county's precious resources.  We are focused on building a resilient, sustainable, and inclusive community.

Established in 1946 as a local unit of government to protect the environment and Michigan's natural resources, we are here to help you start conservation planning today. We prioritize resources toward soil and water conservation, local food systems, urban land reuse, improving production agriculture, and the long-term viability of Genesee County's resources.
