Thank You, voters of Allegan County!
After the Primary Election and the Special Election, the final results are in. The Allegan Conservation District (ACD) millage has passed. ACD can now continue and improve on its outstanding programs dedicated to our environment and sustaining Allegan County natural resources for future generations. One of the many new projects includes a coalition of six partners that will conduct volunteer cleanups of 21 beaches and 4 rivers, removing trash and large debris. Allegan County voted “For the Land, For the Water, and For the Future”.

MACD Technician of the Year
Mike Ludlam, Allegan Conservation District’s MAEAP Technician was nominated for the “Technician of the Year 2020” during our annual MACD Fall/Winter Virtual Convention. Mike’s willingness to share his expertise and experiences with up and coming conservationists won him the title this year. He is a leader in his field often topping the charts in farm verifications and recertifications. Not even a pandemic can keep Mike from meeting and exceeding his yearly goals. Way to go Mike, you deserve it.
