Welcome to the Marquette Conservation District:
Celebrating over 58 Years of Natural Resource Stewardship!
The Marquette County Conservation District was established in 1955 and is managed by a five-member board of directors who are elected for four-year terms by county residents at the district's annual meeting in October. As elected officials, they are responsible for the operation and management of the Conservation District.
Our mission is to provide for the conservation and restoration of resources in Marquette County through forestry and wildlife practices, watershed management, soil erosion control programs, and education. As part of the "Gateway" concept, we provide resource directory assistance for all your conservation needs.
