Conservation

Programs administered and services provided by the Conservation are related to natural resource management. Most of the public lands in the county are managed for wildlife, compatible recreation, and conservation education. The Marshall County Conservation Board has more than 2,200 acres of land on 27 locations for camping, picnicking, fishing, canoeing, hiking, bicycle trails, forest areas, or native prairie. Some areas are designated wildlife refuge and others are open for public hunting. Click here to view the Marshall County Conservation Area Map.

The Conservation Naturalist conducts environmental education programs for school groups and the general public. 

Marshall County Conservation publishes Seasons, a quarterly newsletter, as well as brochures about specific areas. Subscribe to the Conservation mailing list to receive the Seasons newsletter, as well as announcements and reminders about upcoming events delivered to your e-mail.
