Mission Statement:  The mission of the Hamlin County Conservation District is to assist our county residents in protecting and conserving our natural resources through financial, technical and educational means.

The Hamlin County Conservation District includes all land located in Hamlin County.  The County population is approximately 5,900 people living on the 538 square mile area.  Hayti is the county seat of Hamlin County, which is also where the Hamlin Conservation District office is located.  Activities for the outdoors patrons are abundant in Hamlin County.  There are more than eight lakes scattered throughout the County to choose from when fishing.  Hunting season brings numerous hunters in fall and winter in search of whitetail deer, pheasant, geese, ducks and muskrats.  There are many snowmobile trails and activities to participate in. 

The Hamlin County Conservation District provides many services to the producers, such as tree belt planning, and planting, fabric application, tree cleaning, mowing, rototilling, and hand planting, as well as tree sales.  Also available are two John Deere No Till Drills, a Grass Drill and two Land Rollers for rent.  Call us at 605-783-3642 for more information or to schedule services.

Monthly Board Meetings are held on the second Monday at the District Office in Hayti, during the following months:  January, February, April, June, August, October, December.  (Subject to change)
