CONSERVATION DISTRICT PROGRAMS

Specialized assistance to obtain information and/or implement Best Management Practices (BMP) designed to eliminate or reduce soil erosion and to protect and improve water quality and all other natural resources.
Educational programs that target the entire population of Brown County are available to all school aged students, citizens, agencies and organizations that are interested in learning about the wise use of our natural resources.
The Wildlife Specialist program is partially funded by the Division of Wildlife to include wildlife education and habitat management as well as wildlife/human conflict resolution.
The White Oak Creek Watershed Program began in late1999 and has grown to a large multi facetted program that incorporates water quality monitoring, nonpoint source pollution reduction implementation practices, citizen & youth education, community outreach, and water pollution research. The White Oak Creek Watershed Partners recently obtained the endorsement of its Watershed Action Plan, enabling the program to seek more funding to reduce water resource impairments in all stream segments within the watershed and bring those waters up to the highest water quality feasible.
The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is a division of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). The NRCS office implements the 2008 Farm Bill. The 2008 Farm Bill offers America's farmers more incentives than ever before to voluntarily conserve natural resources on our nation's privately owned farmland.
