Authorized by state law and guided by an elected volunteer Board of Supervisors, Berkshire Conservation District is a not for profit agency dedicated to the conservation of natural resources in Berkshire County. The District works in cooperation with state, federal, and local agencies on matters of natural resource protection.

The Berkshire Conservation District serves the community in the preservation of its natural resources.

The District provides technical assistance and education on soil, water, and related resources.

The Berkshire Conservation District is a not for profit environmental educational organization which works with the Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) to protect the soil and water of Berkshire County.
