As the world continues to change around us, from both social and environmental perspectives,
Conservation Districts must prepare, plan, and adapt in order to face whatever challenges the 21st Century will present.
Join us for our 2021 Virtual Summer Conference to learn more about how your district can be better positioned
to meet those challenges head on.
