Montcalm Conservation District

Montcalm Conservation District The Conservation District is a unit of State government by which local people and public agencies work together to address natural resource concerns and improve quality of life for the residents of Montcalm County.

We are your gateway to natural resources information and assistance in Montcalm County. Conservation Districts are units of State Government by which local people, with the assistance of public agencies, work together to solve soil and water and address and other resource concerns. We assist landowners, communities, and units of government in planning and implementing conservation systems to reduce erosion, improve soil and water quality, improve and conserve wetlands, enhance wildlife habitat, improve woodlands and more.

Mission: To protect Montcalm County’s natural resources through education, outreach and participation.

🌲Montcalm Conservation District tree distribution information... If you were contacted with information that some/all of your order would be available, the pick up date has been scheduled for WEDNESDAY, May 20th in the office parking lot at 77 South State St. Stanton; 9 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. We will adhere to all public health and social distancing mandates. Order fulfillment will be strictly drive through. Please stay in your vehicle; we will place your order in your trunk, truck bed, etc. We do not anticipate any extra trees/seedlings to be available, so no "shopping" opportunities exist. While this is a very different system, we are pleased to offer the opportunity to provide trees and seedlings for your conservation endeavors! Please be mindful of the traffic in the parking lot and know that we will expedite loading your order to every extent possible. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate through this most unusual and challenging time. Your support is truly appreciated! 🌲

Tuesday, May 5, 2020

Zoom Webinar

With many households staying at home 24/7, increased hand washing, meal preparation and other water use has put a strain on many onsite wastewater systems, aka septic systems.

This program will focus on use, maintenance and troubleshooting septic problems during this time of stay home/stay safe.

🍒Interested in expanding your orchards? The Black Gold Mazzard Cherry is a delicious option. These sweet cherries bloom later in the season and are somewhat frost resistant. The Black Gold is also as self-pollinating fruit tree and its blossoms are great for pollinators. 🍒

There's a reason White Pine is Michigan's state tree. These tall, fast growing trees not only produce valuable timber for construction and furniture, but also provide food and cover for white-tailed deer, small mammals, and birds. What trees are you planning on purchasing from our tree sale?
