Kent Conservation District has adjusted our availability due to Governor Whitmer’s “Stay at Home Order” due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Our office is closed for all “in-person” activities until April 13 as directed by Governor Whitmer. Any communication for the Kent Conservation District can be made, however, by emailing us at or leave a message at (248) 245-3977 and we will get back with you. We will be checking our messages daily.

We are still taking orders for our Spring Tree & Native Plant Sale online and you may do so at or over the phone at (248) 245-3977.

We have developed contingency plans for the tree sale pickup and will email you with
the contingency plan a few days before the tree pickup dates begin. Please note we
will email you with any updates as this situation develops. We will use every
precaution to keep you and our staff safe during the pickup days.

Thank you for your support and patience as always,
                                                                 Kent Conservation District Board
                                                                Jessie Schulte, District Manager

Our mission to protect and enhance the natural resources of Kent County. We accomplish this with voluntary programs available for private landowners in rural and urban areas, such as: habitat restoration assistance, Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assistance (MAEAP) verification, Farm Bill Programs, and technical assistance to all landowners.

Kent Conservation District is a local provider of natural resource management services that help our citizens conserve their lands and our environment for a cleaner, healthier, economically stronger Michigan. As a local, special purpose unit of government, Kent Conservation District is governed by a locally elected, five-member board of directors. The guiding philosophy of Michigan Conservation Districts is that local people should make decisions on conservation issues at the local level, with technical assistance provided by government.
