We're celebrating over 75 years of being Mason and Western Lake Counties' best resource for groundwater and agricultural stewardship, forest management, wildlife habitat promotion and soil preservation.

Covid update

In response to the COVID regulations provided by DHHS and MIOSHA, our staff will largely be working from home as of November 19, 2020. We will have one staff person in the office daily to answer phones and return messages. We plan to continue field visits to farms and private properties. Staff will be wearing masks for any in-person interactions during field visits, and a six foot distance between people will be maintained. 

We can still help you with our full array of services, including signing up for programs, technical advice, purchases of books, and products. If you aren't sure who to contact, please visit our Contact Us page, call or leave a message at our office at 231-757-3707 ext. 5. We look forward to hearing from you!

Voice Your Opinion!  Guide conservation efforts for the next five years!

We believe that conservation issues are best addressed at the local

level with input from people like you.

Every five years, the Mason-Lake Conservation District (MLCD) looks for feedback from the public about natural resources and conservation in our coverage area. This survey helps us prioritize resources for the most important needs identified by our residents, helping us to promote and implement voluntary conservation.

This survey will take about 5 minutes and can be completed online by clicking the following link: Conservation Needs Assessment.

At the end of the survey, you can choose to enter a drawing to win a $50 gift card towards tree seedlings and other conservation products from our office. To obtain paper copies, please contact the MLCD at 231-757-3707 ext. 5.

All responses will be kept anonymous unless entered into the drawing. Please complete the survey by March 14th, 2021
