The Alpena-Montmorency Conservation District is a local unit of government that has been operating for more than a half century. We are geared at the protection of our natural resources. We have technical staff that can assist our private landowners and local units of government better understand, plan, manage, protect, and utilize our natural resources for current and future generations of Alpena and Montmorency counties. We are an entity of state government and currently hold four grants (Bovine TB, CTAI, MAEAP, and FAP) from the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.
