Natural Resource Assessment Survey for Clare County
The Clare Conservation District provides education, technical assistance, partnerships, and contacts for local resources to help our residents conserve their lands and our environment for a cleaner, healthier, economically stronger Clare County.

Every five years, the Clare Conservation District (CCD) looks for feedback about natural resources and conservation in our county. This survey helps us prioritize resources for the most important needs identified by our residents, helping us to promote and implement voluntary conservation.

This survey can be completed online or by paper copy. For a paper copy, please contact the Clare CD at 989.539.6401 or visit www.clarecd.org. Completed surveys can be emailed to melissa.townsend@macd.org, or mailed or dropped off at the office at Clare County Building.

All responses will be kept anonymous. Please complete surveys by February, 2021.
