Welcome to MACD's New Website!MACD Logo

Welcome to the new Michigan Association of Conservation Districts Website! Our new website serves a two-fold purpose:

  1. CD Showcase: The site's 'front-facing' public side provides a striking statewide online showcase of the power and programs of Michigan Conservation Districts.
  2. Members-Only Hub: Our new private, members-only area offers our District community a collaborative communication, information and networking hub.  

With our new site's two sides – the front-facing public website and the members-only area – this is an amazingly robust system that will continuously evolve.
