Your One Stop Shop for Resource Conservation
The Blair County Conservation District is a local agency that provides conservation-based programs and services to the residents of Blair County. The District acts as a clearinghouse for natural resource information and promotes local environmental initiatives. The District often serves as the first contact for environmental issues related to the identification, protection and preservation of our Blair County natural resources.
An active, knowledgeable board of district directors, and a professional, well-trained staff, are the foundation for the success of the Blair County Conservation District. The Board of Directors, residents of the county appointed by the Blair County Commissioners, act to solicit resources and projects for the betterment of our area. Who better to know the needs and issues of the county than those that live and work in Blair County?
Whether you are a Farmer, Contractor, Environmental Educator, Environmental Partner, Homeowner or Local Government Unit, chances are the District has resources and information for your use. We encourage you to peruse this website and offer that you contact us if you would like more information about any of our programs.
