The Plymouth County Conservation District is over 60 years old and still going strong. PCCD was established by state legislation in 1942 in order to bring USDA conservation help to farmers. Today, as then, the Conservation District is a local environmental agency dedicated to wise land use and conservation of natural resources.
The District raises most of its' operational revenue through annual fund raising programs and grants. PCCD uses the proceeds to provide various conservation and educational programs, along with conservation workshops throughout the year. Money raised goes right back into the county!
The Plymouth District is managed by a seven member volunteer Board of Supervisors, who are elected to 3 year terms on a rotating basis. Any landowner or occupier in Plymouth County is eligible to serve on the board or as a non-voting Associate Member. We are always looking for interested people.
Our monthly meetings take place in the conference room at the USDA Building (8 Thatcher Lane, Wareham, MA, 02576) every second Wednesday of the month at 6:30 pm.
All are welcome!
