About Us

A Conservation District is a special government district, just like you’re local school or sewer district. Instead of students though, we are responsible for protecting the soil and water quality of all of Monroe County. We accomplish this by working to improve water quality, control soil erosion, assist agricultural landowners and municipalities, educate the public, and more. We have been hard at work since 1953, and are committed to protecting today, to provide for tomorrow.
