We're celebrating over 80 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 the CDC and building guidelines implemented by the US Department of Agriculture, our staff is obligated to keep building doors locked to the public, and cannot have visitors inside at this time. We CAN meet outside our building, or on your property or farm. Please just call ahead! We continue to do field visits to farms and private properties as usual and have been hosting in-person educational events where possible. Please remember to maintain a six foot distance between people and wear a mask as you see fit.

Results of Public Survey for Conservation Needs

Every five years, the Mason-Lake Conservation District (MLCD) looks for feedback from the public about natural resources and conservation needs in our coverage area.

This survey helps us prioritize resources for the most important projects identified by our residents, helping us to promote and implement voluntary conservation. Responses are utilized by the MLCD Board of Directors to guide Annual Plans of Work. These survey responses also show trends on how the needs of our district evolve and change over time. This information will be utilized to develop a five-year Strategic Plan for Mason-Lake Conservation District, so that we can begin to have a more long-term, community driven approach to managing the natural resources of Mason and western Lake Counties.
