Located in scenic West Michigan, the Muskegon Conservation District is a unique governmental subdivision of the state, created to serve as stewards of our natural resources. The guiding philosophy is that local people should make decisions on conservation issues at the local level, with technical assistance provided by local resource professionals. District projects and programs are as diverse as the landscape and are continually changing to meet the environmental challenges in local communities.

The Muskegon Conservation District was formed in 1938, and remains active to this day helping you restore, protect, and manage our natural resources.

2018 Japanese Knotweed Treatment

Starting in early July, the district will begin herbicide treatments for Japanese Knotweed for the year. Prior to treatments, we will be contacting landowners that have been sprayed previously. If you have knotweed that has not been previously treated by us and are interested in having it treated, please contact the office. Additionally, you will need to have a signed and completed cooperator agreement prior to treatment. Please contact Kathryn if you have any questions.
