The Berkshire Conservation District serves the community in the preservation of its natural resources. Authorized by State Statute, the District was created to coordinate state and federal conservation programs at the local level. The District provides technical assistance and education on soil, water, and related resources.
Municipalities, farmers, and landowners use this information to make proper land use decisions. 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.
Proceeds from our sales are crucial to the continuation of our programs! The programs funded by our sales include conservation planning assistance on public and private lands, soil survey reports, conservation tree seedling sales, bulb sales, training workshops, technical assistance, conservation education programs like the Envirothon, and environmental education scholarships & internships to BCC & UMass students.
Monthly board meetings are held every second Wednesday of the month at 4:30pm at our office. Meetings are open to the public
