Senior Care

Many seniors are unaware of the available care options and programs that can help maintain their independence and quality of life, so we created a free resource that provides comprehensive information on topics like financial support, organizations, and available care options that are in every city in Michigan that can help senior citizens stay connected with their community. You can read more about our work here:

Forestry Assistance Program

Are you a private forest owner wanting to know more about the management of your property for forest products, wildlife, recreation, aesthetics, tax and cost-share incentives and overall forest health? Contact Conservation District Forester Nia Becker for a free onsite assessment.

If you own 20+ Acres of non-homestead forestland, you may be eligible to reduce your property taxes! The Qualified Forest Program will reduce the land taxes as well as prevent the uncapping of the land’s taxable value. To enroll you must have and follow a forest management plan written by a qualified forester.  If you are interested in these programs or services, Contact the Clare Conservation District at (989) 539-6401, email our forester or visit our website at or

Though there are many barriers that hinder people from getting the help they need, awareness is a significant factor. This can be in the form of lack of recognition or just not knowing the available avenues for help. So, we created a comprehensive set of guides that provide information on many of the prevailing substance abuses that are affecting our communities today, various care options, and many free resources. Here are examples of our top guides:
