What is the Ingham Conservation District?
It is a local unit of government organized over 50 years ago under the state as a means of responding to local natural resource problems through local citizens.
Governed by a five-member board of directors, the staff and volunteers carry out the mission with yearly programs that focus on local ground and surface water quality, soil erosion control, wildlife and forest habitat, agricultural and urban conservation practices, riparian and wetland restorations, and conservation equipment and products.
The Ingham Conservation Center is a 200 acre site with unparalleled opportunities for visitors to experience and develop techniques in proper natural resource stewardship. The Ingham Conservation District obtained the land in 2000 from the Department of natural Resources and is transforming it from a game rearing facility to a world-class conservation education center.
The Ingham Conservation District promotes and practices stewardship of our natural resources by providing personalized assistance and guidance to meet local concerns.
