Kentucky Conservation Districts are Special Purpose Government Entities, organized under Kentucky Revised Statute 262. Conservation Districts are responsible for protecting our soil, water and other natural resources.
Conservation Districts are your local link to resources and assistance through the Kentucky Division of Forestry, Kentucky Department for Fish and Wildlife Resources, and other state and federal agencies. A Cooperative Working Agreement with the United States Department of Agriculture, Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) brings federal assistance to Kenton County. The Conservation District makes technical and financial help available to reduce soil erosion, prevent water pollution, and maintain and improve the quality and productivity of our farmlands, forests, and other natural resources. Assistance is available to everyone in dealing with natural resources issues, including farmers, homeowners, businesses, schools, organizations, agencies, cities and local governments.
Conservation Districts work closely with the KY Cabinet for Environmental and Public Protection. The Conservation District operates in the Kentucky Division of Conservation under the Kentucky Department for Natural Resources.
