Clarion Conservation District

Working to protect Clarion County’s natural resources.
DIRT, GRAVEL, AND LOW VOLUME ROADS

Clarion County’s Dirt and Gravel Road program provides funding to townships and eligible applicants to eliminate stream pollution caused by dust and sediment from unpaved roads.

EROSION AND SEDIMENT

Erosion and Sedimentation (E & S) controls are used in instances where soil is being disturbed by development, timber harvesting or by highway development. 

 

AGRICULTURE

The Conservation District can provide educational assistance to the agriculture community on the best management practices for handling nutrients on farms to minimize water pollution.

 

EDUCATION

The District assists with educational activities including local workshops for adults as well as assisting with high school educational events such as Earth Day and the Envirothon. 

 

WATERSHEDS

A watershed is a large basin where all precipitation that reaches the ground travels across the topography to the lowest drainage point. CCD works to address environmental concerns in the local watersheds.

About Us

ABOUT US

​From its inception in 1938, the Clarion Conservation District’s goal has been the promotion of wise land use in agriculture and the developing community through education or technical assistance.  Over the years, meeting the needs of the residents of Clarion County has expanded the role of the District into areas of water quality, erosion and sediment control, environmental education, dirt and gravel road maintenance and nutrient management.  The duties delegated by the State Conservation Commission are administered by a volunteer board of directors.  The board members, a vital part of this organization, offer years of experience in agriculture, business, science, technology, education and public policy.

District Board of Directors meet the 3rd Tuesday of every month at 10am in the office conference room, located at 249 S 2nd Ave, Clarion, PA.  Zoom invites upon request
The LAG of the Clarion County ACAP Program, administered by the Clarion Conservation District, will meet at the Clarion Conservation District on May 8th, 2024 at 1pm.
