Developing a management/conservation plan is a proactive effort to protect the vitality and sustainability of the natural resources on the land. It is also the first step in finding and qualifying for government conservation programs. Management plans can be developed for a number of different resources: forestry, agriculture, soil, water and wildlife habitat. The plan is a blueprint for the future of your land’s natural resources.
Identifying what you want to do with the land will help you develop a comprehensive plan. Include the goals and needs your family from the beginning of the process to help you create a plan that will meet future expectations. Even if you currently like the way your land looks, you will need to do something to keep weeds out and the water clean. Property owners are encouraged to consult with a conservation planner from the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) or the Marion SWCD for assistance in developing a management plan.
