Adams County Conservation District Board of Directors

Adams County Conservation District Board of Directors

Unique to Adams County, the District is a division of the Adams County Office of Planning & Development. Even so, the District Board of Directors continues to be the District’s governing body and is ultimately responsible for establishing direction of the staff and its resources. In Adams County, the District is very fortunate to have a dedicated District Board of Directors and have supportive County Commissioners, that not only work well together, but also make informed decisions to collectively better serve the agricultural and natural resources needs of the residents of Adams County.
