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.
