The Barry Conservation District shares an office with the USDA NRCS at 1611 S. Hanover Street in Hastings (the Secretary of State Building). The District and NRCS continue to work together to provide information and technical assistance to local agricultural operators.

District Programs

  • The Forestry Assistance Program (FAP), located in the Barry and Ionia Conservation District offices, offers free, confidential on-farm assistance in minimizing threats to the environment.
  • In addition to providing educational programs and conservation projects, each spring and fall the District holds a tree sale, providing inexpensive bare-root trees and planting supplies to encourage reforestation and habitat development in Barry County, now featuring American chestnut from our partnership with the American Chestnut Council.
