Berrien Conservation District

Managing your Natural Resources

Due to the pandemic, USDA service centers have instituted locked door policies. Since the Conservation District is housed in the USDA building we have to follow USDA guidelines. Public access is not allowed at this time.  Please direct Conservation District inquires to the manager at or call 269-471-9111 x3. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We appreciate your patience during this time.

2017 Berrien County Plat Books are available at our office! Reduced to $24.99

We accept volunteers for programs and fundraisers.

Local farmers finding ways to make crops and environment 'greener' by adding Water Control Structures to their drain tile. 

The Berrien Conservation District was very excited to invite WSBT's Danielle Kennedy out to interview Patrick Freehling of Baroda on Water Control Structures and their benefits to crop production and water quality!  Click on the link to view the interview:  (click on the white circle in the center of the corn to start the video after clicking the link)

Update 5/10/19 - Patrick Freehling passed away unexpectedly the morning of May 2, 2019 due to an accident. Our thoughts and prayers have been with his family and friends in this difficult time.
