[ARCHIVED] Conservation District Director Nominations Solicited


Are you concerned about the water quality and other natural resources in Centre County? You can make a difference by serving as a director or associate director for the Centre County Conservation District.

District directors have a direct say in how people in the county deal with many important natural resource issues such as water quality, forestry, agricultural best management practices, and soil erosion. Serving on the conservation district board is an excellent way to make an impact on the future of our natural resources.

Conservation districts in Pennsylvania are subdivisions of state government that manage and direct conservation programs within counties. The Centre County Conservation District staff work directly with landowners and other citizens to put conservation practices on the land and educate the community on environmental issues and trends.

The district board meets monthly to conduct the business of the district and to coordinate district programs with state and federal agencies and local units of government. Board members are not paid, but may receive compensation for expenses related to attending meetings and other activities of the board.

Individuals interested in serving as director or associate director of the Centre County Conservation District need to be nominated by an approved nominating organization within the county. For more information, contact the Centre County Conservation District office at 814-355-6817, the County Commissioners Office at 814-355-6700 or the State Conservation Commission office in Harrisburg at 717-787-8821.
