At the Local Level

Helping to preserve the beauty, health, & quality of

Carroll County's natural resources for over 74 years

Established in 1946, Carroll County Conservation District works with towns and individual landowners to coordinate State & Federal conservation programs at the local level in the interest of public health, safety and welfare. 

Our efforts are focused on concerns including water quality, erosion & sedimentation, wildlife habitats, health of forests & wetlands, non-point source pollution, and storm water & flooding.
