Your Land. Your Water. Your County.
Promoting the conservation, informed usage, and protection of Antrim County’s natural resources since 1944.
The Antrim Conservation District (ACD) was formed in 1947 by local farmers to conserve, improve, and maintain Antrim County’s soil and to promote efficient and economical use of the land. ACD serves as the first stop for local citizens, farmers, landowners, conservation groups, and county government for their natural resource needs.
Today our mission remains much the same: to promote the exploration and conservation of Antrim County’s natural resources.
Like all conservation districts in Michigan, ACD has a board of locally elected leaders who guide the district’s goals towards the needs and desires of the county. Our current programs include forestry, water quality and soil erosion, invasive species, and recycling/household hazardous waste. Our staff and programs are funded by county appropriations, the millage, and grant funding.
