Who we are

Iron Baraga Conservation District

We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.  ~Native American Proverb

Conservation Districts began to form during the dust bowl years. Iron Conservation District served the people of Iron County since 1961. Iron Conservation District and Baraga Conservation District merged on Feb 9th, 2016 and formed the Iron Baraga Conservation District.  We now serve both Iron and Baraga Counties. Many environmental issues we face today cross county and state borders; We work in partnership with many State or County agencies, and many other Conservation Districts to  help all who live in this great county.
