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

The Oceana Conservation District is a legal entity of state government organized under provisions of Act 297 (Public Acts of 1937) as amended. It was established in1972 by Public Referendum and was the last Conservation District established in the State of Michigan. A five member locally elected Board of Directors develops policy and conducts  programs within the District, which covers all of Oceana County.

Five Year Strategic Plan

In 2016, the District developed a resource assessment survey to gain an understanding of the resource concerns held by our citizens. A five year strategic plan for Oceana Conservation District aims to enhance and protect the natural resources valued by Oceana County residents and addresses concerns that were expressed by the people who took the survey.
