MISSION

The Mission of the Oceana Conservation District is to promote conservation, stewardship and sustainable use of the natural resources in Oceana County, through landowner assistance and education.

HISTORY

Oceana Conservation District is a local unit of state government organized under provisions of Act 297 (Public Acts of 1937) as amended. Oceana Conservation District was established in 1972, the last Conservation District established in Michigan. The District is governed by a five-member, locally-elected Board of Directors. Conservation districts in Michigan were formed to provide natural resource management services that help residents conserve their lands and our environment for a cleaner, healthier, economically-strong Michigan. We address local concerns including: water quality, soil conservation, erosion control, land use/forest management, non-point source pollution, invasive species management, habitat improvement, etc.
