Due to the current Corona virus pandemic and to protect the health of our community the St. Joseph County Conservation District office is closed to all walk-in customers until the USDA Service Center re-opens to the public. We will continue to provide services by email and regular mail, and limited services by phone.
All events for April have been canceled or postponed. The tree and shrub seedling sale fundraiser has NOT been postponed. Tree seedling orders are still being accepted and will be fulfilled on a first come first serve basis.

Please be safe and we are looking forward to seeing you soon! The staff and board of directors at the St. Joseph County Conservation District.
The St. Joseph County Conservation District was established in 1948 to assist farmers in creating soil & water conservation plans. Since then the Conservation District has grown to include all stakeholders within the county. The focus is still agriculture & working with farmers to create conservation plans, but we also work with partner organizations to ensure the county's largest natural resource, water, remains a viable resource.
Guided by a volunteer board of five members and paid staff the Conservation District works with partners to promote ground and surface water practices, irrigation services, sustainable agriculture practices, education, environmental stewardship and community projects.
The Conservation District is able to provide this assistance with community support through volunteers and financial assistance. Throughout the year the Conservation District hosts several fundraising events including the annual tree sale, annual meeting and a local foods dinner.
