Mission Statement

The Clinton County Conservation District provides quality leadership, education and service for the stewardship and conservation of the county’s natural resources.

Function

The Clinton County Conservation District is a sub-division of state government created to administer conservation work within its boundaries. Funding for the District is provided by the Clinton County Commissioners, the Pennsylvania State Conservation Commission, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, and the Unconventional Gas Fund.

The Clinton County Conservation District was organized at the request of the county citizens interested in soil and water conservation, land use planning and flood prevention. The county was declared a District by the County Board of Commissioners or December 19th, 1946.

We provide technical, financial and educational resources, to help county residents conserve soil, water and related natural resources. We can help guide county residents through environmental regulations and to help them properly manage their natural resources and their land.
