The Worcester County Conservation District (WCCD) is a voice for their local community, providing leadership on conservation issues and establishing priorities for conservation projects. We identify and address natural resource concerns in local communities, and coordinate public and private resources to meet local needs on a grassroots level. Our Conservation District partners with state and federal agencies such as United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Natural Resource Conservation Services (NRCS) to deliver needed programs, education and technical assistance to their communities. WCCD is a non-funded division of state government established under state law to conserve and wisely manage resources.
