Notice to Cancel Public Gatherings & Contacts

We really look forward to connecting with our community at our Board of Supervisor’s Meetings  and local workshops to share our mission of helping people help the land.

Direction from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and our partner agencies is based on the strongest and most recent information we have to protect the public. For more information on these guidelines please visit the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment website

We need to prioritize the health and safety of our community. Given this direction to limit the effects of COVID-19 in our community, we will not hold group gatherings until further notice. 

Plant Pick Up Day of April 21 is rescheduled as the Douglas County Fairgrounds is closed through May 1.  We will notify the public as soon as have an available date for Plant Pick Up Day. Until that time, the purchase cut-off date is also undetermined. Please check back at the page for updates.

Board of Supervisor Meetings are public meetings.  As of March 20, these monthly meetings are offered to the public via a conference call service.   Meetings are posted on our Events page at The details of this service are listed on each Event.  Please check back as updates will come as the situation improves in the future.

Office Hours as of March 20, our office in Franktown is not open to visitors until April 3 at this time.  However, we fully intend to continue to offer conservation support services.  Please contact us and check out our website 24/7.  We look forward to helping you.

This is conservation.

Welcome to the Douglas County Conservation District in Douglas County, Colorado!

Wildlife, rainwater, plant life, soil.  Our land is a complex system of interrelated parts. As a landowner,  you have the privilege, as well as the responsibility, to serve as a good steward of these resources.

Whether you own a sprawling ranch in the countryside, or a simple backyard in the suburbs, how you manage your land truly matters. Your efforts will be reflected in the quality of life you establish for yourself, your neighbors, and generations to come.

But conservation should not be thought of as a chore. As a landowner in Douglas County, you have a unique opportunity to make productive use of your land, while at the same time surrounding yourself with nature, enriching your life with natural beauty, and feeling a sense of satisfaction that you are doing your part.
