Clinton Conservation District

The Clinton County Conservation District has been serving the interests of the citizens by providing leadership and technical assistance in the conservation of our soil and water resources. The political support to create a Conservation District came from Landowners who needed assistance in planning and installing conservation and land improvement practices (such as tile drainage) in order to make Clinton County one of the top agricultural counties in the state.

Today the District is still working with the agricultural community to control erosion and protect water quality while assisting the urban and suburban landowners with making wise and productive land use decisions on smaller tracts of land. In addition to working with landowners the District coordinates their activities with MSU Extension, the Health Department and the Drain Commission in regard to the protection of public health, soil and water resources and to provide an effective and efficient public information and education program.
