Welcome!

    Our mission is to encourage and assist the people of Crawford County in making decisions for the wise use of our natural resources to provide a quality environment for all.



Conservation Districts are locally organized self-governing bodies chartered by the State. Through voluntary action and cooperation of landowners (and other stake holders), the District works to conserve land, water, forest, wildlife and other related resources for the benefit of all.


 Southern Watershed Survey

Are you a farmer, or know one in the Little Scioto, Olentangy, or Mud Run Watersheds? If so, we have a survey that we would appreciate you filling out. This information will help us learn how we can help you and your operation's conservation needs! We need as much information as we can gather from our county residents to see how best we can benefit you with the services, programs, and funding opportunities our office can provide.

 

As always, if any questions, give us a call or stop in!
