The Jefferson Conservation District is committed to helping people conserve, maintain, and improve our local natural resources and environment. In order to do this, the District has developed a Long Range Plan to guide the Board and Staff in continuing to make decisions that will most effectively address our community's natural resource concerns.

In 2017, the Board of Directors updated our Long Range Plan to guide the District through 2020.  Priorities are based on land use changes, urban expansion, social, economic, and environmental conditions, as well as feedback from local landowners, producers, partners, and community members. Our efforts will be focused toward the following priorities:

Weed management in forest, riparian, and urbanizing areas

Increase sustainable farm practices to protect air, soil, and water in agriculture operations

In order to achieve these goals, we will be working together with partners such as NRCS, CDPHE, Watershed Associations, CGS, Land Owners, and Local governments.
