WHO WE ARE
The Oakland Conservation District is a local, special-purpose unit of government under the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development designed to provide natural resource information and technical assistance to Oakland County residents, municipalities, and governments.
Our primary source of funding is through our Spring Tree & Shrub Sale. Those bare-root seedling sales allow us to partner with other natural resource organizations and cooperate with Oakland County Parks and Recreation, the Oakland Farmers' Market, and MSU Extension on their projects.
The Oakland Conservation District is managed by a five-member Board of Directors that is locally elected by the constituents of Oakland County. The Directors make decisions regarding the District's programs and activities and hire qualified staff. If you want to be more involved, come to one of our public Board Meetings held the third Wednesday of every month at 6:00 pm at the Oakland Conservation District Office or call us at (248) 922-7822.
"The Oakland Conservation District is dedicated to promoting sound environmental stewardship in Oakland County by providing residents with reliable information and technical assistance regarding the management and use of our natural resources."
