Cherokee County Conservation Board (CCCB) receives funding from several sources. Grant money and private donations play an important part in funding, but the biggest portion of funding comes from property taxes.
Donations in many forms are always welcomed by Cherokee County Conservation. Items such as tools and building material can be donated as well as special items to commemorate a loved one like a bench or a tree sapling. Monetary donations to CCCB can be used to purchase more conservation acres, help with habitat improvement, park improvement and amenities and conservation education. Direct gifts of conservation easements or land to protect wildlands from development are also welcomed.
To make a donation please send a check and mark what you would like it to be used for:
- Conservation Education
- Martins Access Improvement Fund
- Silver Sioux Improvement Fund
- Capital Improvement Fund
