A Helping Hand for Healthy Lands
Kent Conservation District's mission is to protect and enhance the natural resources of Kent County.
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 May 28th as directed. Any communication for the Kent Conservation District can be made, however, by emailing us at KCD@macd.org or leave a message at (248) 245-3977 and we will get back with you. We will be checking our messages daily. Monthly Board meetings will be conducted virtually, call if you would like to join via your computer or phone.
We have closed Spring Native Plant Sale pre-orders but we plan to have a large Fall native plant sale on Saturday, October 17th. See https://www.kentconservation.org/plant-sales/.
Thank you for your support and patience as always,

Kent Conservation District Board & Staff
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.
