Leadership Group Facilitation
The Campbell County Conservation District’s main goals are to preserve and restore farmland, as well as protect natural settings such as unique forests and riparian corridors. Our work is focused on a dedicated Farmland Work Group that supports local agricultural businesses while also assisting farmers in developing their farms’ economic and ecological potential.
We have spent our resources in a focused manner to develop protection procedures for farmland, beginning with determining where our farms are, what they produce, and whether or not they are economically viable. We received a grant from our state Conservation Land Fund to acquire a 135-acre tract of unique riverfront property, and we’re developing a restoration plan.
The Campbell County Conservation District was established in 1945 by a referendum of the county’s residents. The District is a state-level unit that is led by seven elected officials at the local level.
