Our Work

"I consider the soil conservation districts movement one of the most important developments in the whole history of agriculture."            

-Hugh Hammond Bennett

Our quality of life  is closely linked with the quality of natural resources. Our work is focused on protecting, improving, and enhancing natural resources and the environment.  We work cooperatively with residents and landowners through the delivery of voluntary and non-regulatory programs, initiatives, and processes, by providing sound scientific knowledge, insight, and assistance.

  • Learn About Board Governance
    Michigan's Conservation Districts are locally controlled resource management agencies with oversight by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development. Like other Michigan Conservation Districts, Genesee Conservation District is governed by a local, publicly-elected, five member board serving four year terms. For organizational continuity, Board Director elections are staggered. The qualifications for becoming a Board Director are to be at least 18 years of age and a resident Genesee County. Board members should have a passion for natural resources conservation. Board participation includes monthly meetings and involvement at events. The Board receives no compensation. The next Board Director public election will be held in March of 2024. One 4-year position will be up for election. If you wish to be placed on the ballot for one of the seats, you must complete a Nominating Petition (see below) and return it to Angela Warren on or by January 28, 2024. Genesee County residents of legal age may vote at the election or by absentee ballot. An absentee ballot may be obtained 45 days before the election, in person at the District office or by phone, during regular business hours.
