About the District

The Middlesex Conservation District was established in 1947 by a group of Middlesex County residents committed to providing a program of soil and water conservation. We are a not-for-profit subdivision of state government guided by an elected, volunteer Board of Supervisors and work in cooperation with federal, state, and local agencies and organizations. Through a partnership with the U.S.D.A. Natural Resources Conservation Service, Middlesex Conservation District has helped landowners and municipalities identify natural resource concerns and plan solutions.

MCD is one of more than 3000 conservation districts throughout the United States. The philosophy behind conservation districts has always been that local people working to assess community conservation needs know best how to solve local problems, and that voluntary conservation, coupled with education, results in long-term success.
