Community Action Planning Program

Conservation Through Community Leadership

If you are interested in natural resource management, conservation, agriculture and land use planning issues, come take part in a Conservation through Community Leadership workshop kick-off visioning session. This Purdue Extension program empowers participants to work together to set priorities and develop community action plans. 

Whether or not you can attend, The Kosciusko County working group for Conservation through Community Leadership is interested in receiving your feedback related to current efforts and attitudes for local natural resources protection. Your input is appreciated as part of this community action planning process. You can take the short survey HERE.

Who Should Participate

This program is designed for local leaders and officials, representatives from nongovernmental organizations or residents who want to take part in natural resource decisions.

What to Expect

Participants can come to the sessions with a project in mind, or through the visioning process, the group can identify issues to address. The five-hour kickoff session provides an opportunity to engage with others in your community through a color-coded visioning process that gets you moving around the room—it is interactive and fun!

Through the facilitated meeting sessions, the group will learn more about assessing ecosystem health and natural resource management options. With support from decision support tools, the group will develop a high-quality community action plan.

This community action plan can:

  • Identify and address natural resource issues in your community
  • Update comprehensive plan efforts.
  • Support watershed management plans.
  • Create habitat management plans.
  • Implement fundraising initiatives for specific projects.


The Watershed Foundation, Kosciusko County Soil and Water Conservation District, and Kosciusko County Area Planning Department took the initiative to bring the Conservation through Community Leadership workshop to our area.

Lunch will be provided!
