Welcome to the web site of Kent Conservation District! Our mission is to protect and enhance the natural resources of Kent County, Michigan. We accomplish this with voluntary programs available for private landowners in rural and urban areas, such as: habitat restoration assistance, nutrient and pest management plans, the construction of secondary containment and agri-chemical storage facilities, and the development of comprehensive nutrient management plans. Please use the menu at the top of the page to access more information about our programs.
Just a reminder that Kent Conservation District will be holding a stake-holder meeting for the Flat River Watershed Plan on Wednesday, February 25 in the Lincoln Lake area at Spencer Township Hall (14960 Meddler Ave, Gowen MI 49326) from 3:30p - 5p. Water Quality results from this summer’s testing in the area will be presented; also featured will be speakers from the Land Conservancy of West Michigan and the Natural Resources Conservation Services.
Light refreshments will be served, please RSVP to administrator@kentconservation,org to help with planning, or call 616.942.4111x100. Everyone is welcome, feel free to drop in. A full agenda is available below or at www.flatriverwatershed.org under the Management Plan tab. See you soon!
