Upcoming Meetings / Projects


Michigan's Conservation Districts are "unique" local units of State Government, that utilize state, federal, and private sector resources to assist people with sustainable use and protection of the natural resources on their lands.
 
Conservation Districts continually scan the needs of their local communities, work with other conservation minded partners to set local priorities, and develop action plans to solve natural resources problems. The delivery of these efforts by Conservation Districts allows citizens to manage their private lands for a cleaner, healthier Michigan.
 
The Branch County Conservation District is governed by a locally elected, five-member Board of Directors. The Directors make decisions regarding the District's programs and activities and hire qualified staff. The staff provide information, technical assistance, workshops, public education, cost-share opportunities, as well as affordable trees / shrubs to enhance wildlife and reforestation.
 
Since it was organized in 1948, the Branch County Conservation District has provided for the care, use, and conservation of our county's natural resources by creating an awareness of conservation issues and by being the leader in providing innovative assistance. Wildlife habitat development, reforestation projects, surface and groundwater protection and environmental education are all a part of our effort to ensure that landowners preserve their piece of Michigan for their children and future generations.

Swan Creek
Migratory Waterfowl Restoration Project
 
 

In partnership with U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service
the
Branch Conservation District is offering the
opportunity to create restorations on land within the
Swan Creek Watershed. 
Tree plantings, waterfowl
wetlands, warm season grass plantings, exclusion
fencing, and more are included as possible projects.
 
  
Additional funds have been added to this project 
through 2016.
 
So you say you don't live in this Watershed?
 
Please contact us anyway.  This project is
scheduled  to expand into additional
Branch County areas.
 

We still might be able to help.
