Partners in Conservation
Much of the work of the Conservation District, whether educational, technical or administrative, is accomplished through collaborative efforts with state and federal agencies as well as local partners. The District is fortunate to have such a broad base of technical expertise and funding sources from which to draw for conservation programs that benefit Pike County. Below is a listing of just some of the many partnering organizations with which the District collaborates.
Nominating organizations provide a vital link between various community groups and the Conservation District. They have the opportunity to nominate individuals for the Board of Directors of the Pike County Conservation District. Directors shape critical decisions about how Pike County manages our community’s natural assets — soils, forests and woodlands, lakes and wetlands, rivers and streams, and drinking water supplies.
