Anoka Conservation District – Update

The Anoka Conservation District (ACD) provides technical and financial assistance to private landowners to manage natural resources in a way that conserves and improves soil and water resources. When established in 1946, ACD largely worked with agricultural producers but has since evolved to serve the changing demographics of the county. With very little agriculture remaining, ACD provides assistance to landowners on all sized properties and local governments to plan and implement wise resource management strategies.

The guiding mission and policies of the district are established by a board of five elected supervisors and implemented by a staff that ranges from seven to nine full and part time employees (more information about the staff and board of supervisors can be found in their respective sections).
