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.
