can do for you!
In keeping with the Gateway Concept of service to the public, the district
office is open a minimum of 24 hours each week. The Administrator is available
to answer questions or make referrals to other resource agencies as needed.
Conservation Districts throughout the state of Michigan often share
the services of resource professional staff. Jim Rivard, Forester for the Forestry Assistance Program (FAP) services Houghton/Keweenaw,
Ontonagon, and Gogebic districts. Jim's role is to provide technical
assistance and direction to any private landowner interested in actively
managing their forestland for wildlife, timber production, diversity and more.
Based on an agreement
between the NRCS and conservation districts nationwide, the NRCS provides
each district a District Conservationist
to provide technical service to private landowners.
Bruce Petersen is
the District Conservationist assigned to the Houghton Keweenaw, Baraga,
and Ontonagon conservation districts. Petersen provides advice and assistance
to landowners pursuing funding through the Wetland's Reserve Program (WRP)
and has been instrumental in several bat closure projects in the area.
