Our District

The Chippewa/East Mackinac Conservation District was established on May 23, 1949.  In 2009 we celebrated 60 years of service to the landowners of Chippewa and Mackinac Counties.  In July of 2012, the Chippewa/East Mackinac Conservation District merged with the Luce/West Mackinac Conservation District to form the Chippewa/Luce/Mackinac Conservation District. The District now includes all of Chippewa, Luce and Mackinac Counties. 

The number of employees actively working on projects and programs in our District fluctuates depending on the number of federal, state, and local grants made available to the District.  We have been fortunate to receive a number planning and implementation grants dealing with watersheds, water quality, soil protection, invasive plants and insects, and farming enhancements.

Conservation Districts 

Conservation Districts are local units of government consisting of a locally-elected board of directors with small staffs who help landowners and communities with managing their natural resources, including forests, farms, water bodies, and wetlands.  Districts originated in the Dust Bowl days to help farmers improve land management practices to conserve critical soils needed for crop production.  Districts have evolved to help with forestry, fisheries and wildlife, and other natural resource management issues.
  
Michigan's Conservation Districts work to preserve natural resources through education, research, and direct remediation of key areas.  Conservation Districts are supported by state, federal, and private grants, and through their own fundraising efforts - especially the annual tree sale.  District boards and staff are people committed to conserving our renewable resources.
