The Belknap County Conservation District (BCCD) needs your voice!
The Belknap County Conservation District thanks you for your continuing support. Your support and participation in BCCD has allowed us to offer landowners, municipalities, and businesses grant funding and technical assistance to accomplish their natural resource management goals.
The newly elected Belknap County Delegation, which is made up of Representatives to the New Hampshire Legislature, has many new members. Some of these members, by their own admission, are in a learning curve regarding the funding of county departments and associated agencies. BCCD has the support of the Belknap County Commissioners to be funded at last year’s level of $97,304. BCCD assists in generating between 2 and 3 times that amount per year in services and program dollars to benefit residents in Belknap County. County funds pay for one full time employee, part-time seasonal employees, and project consultants from the private sector. The next step is to help inform the members of the Belknap County Delegation about BCCD and gain their support to continue to fund our ability to assist our county.
Please contact your local Belknap County Delegation member! (contact list in attached pdf)
