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.
