Protecting the County’s Natural Resources

The Bucks County Conservation District works to educate and help people and the community take care of the natural resources in Bucks County including soil, water, wildlife, trees and other plants. Using natural resources wisely helps to ensure their availability well into the future.

Effective January 1, 2016 the BCCD will be changing their daily business hours to 8am through 4:30pm. As always, we ask that if you are submitting plans that you plan to arrive 30 minutes prior to the close of business so that your plan can be adequately processed and submitted for review before closing.
