About Us


We are a non-regulatory sub-division of state government created in 1946 to help land users conserve natural resources. Conservation districts are nationwide, grassroots conservation agencies.  JCCD is governed by a local board of supervisors, elected or appointed, consisting of local residents.

We provide technical and financial assistance to help all landowners meet sustainable land use goals. Assistance is provided at no cost. Funding for our services is provided primarily through state and federal grants.
