Then, on Monday, July 9, from 1-4 pm, stop by Conference Room 2 on the 2nd floor of the Schoolcraft County courthouse and meet with NRCS staff. You'll be able to meet with them without an appointment to meet them and discuss what NRCS may be able to do to help you with your landowner questions. If these local office hours are well attended, they may be made more regularly available. Call the SCD office (341-8215) if you have any questions.
AND, Saturday, July 14, you will have the opportunity to bring in and drop off scrap tires you may have lying around. While this is free, donations will be accepted. You are not allowed to bring in tires from a business or farm. There is a limit of 10 tires per household, and only Schoolcraft County residents or landowners are allowed to drop off tires. You will be asked to provide a name and address. Tires must be relatively clean and dry, and cannot contain any wheels or rims. They are also limited to those tires which are from passenger cars or light trucks, and with a maximum diameter of 37". Call the Conservation District office if you have any questions. The tire collection will be held at the Schoolcraft County fair building and only from 9 am - 1 pm on that date only.

The Schoolcraft Conservation District is a unique local unit of state government, which utilizes state, federal and private sector resources to solve today's conservation problems. The guiding philosophy of the Schoolcraft Conservation District is that decisions on conservation issues should be made at the local level, by local people, with technical assistance provided by government. Conservation Districts are referred to as “gateways” for your local community. We provide a link between land managers and a host of conservation service providers that include state, federal, and local governments, conservation organizations, and internet resources. The District continually scans the needs of our community, works in partnership with others involved in conservation to set local priorities, and develops action plans to solve natural resource problems. The delivery of these efforts by the District allows citizens to manage their private lands for a cleaner, healthier Michigan. It allows the public a point of access in their communities when questions arise on how to manage natural resources.
