Conservation along the Creek

Do you have a creek or stream on your property?  Not sure what you can and can't do in or near the stream? Conservation District planners are available to provide free, on-site technical assistance to help you learn more about your stream and how to protect it.  Assistance may include providing information about fish and wildlife habitat and how to enhance it, identifying native plants, and helping you address problems such as noxious weed infestations. Please stay tuned as we further develop this page.
