What is a Conservation District?

A Conservation District is a legal subdivision of state government, responsible under state law for conservation work within its boundaries. The boundaries in Pennsylvania are along county lines. The purposes of conservation districts are:

  • To focus attention on land, water, and related resource problems.
  • To develop programs to solve such problems.
  • To enlist and coordinate assistance from all public and private sources
    that can contribute to accomplishing the district goals.
  • To make all citizens aware of the interrelationship between human
    activities and the natural environment.
