Sac County Conservation Board

The Sac County Conservation Board (SCCB) was established in 1962 in order to acquire, develop, maintain and make available to the inhabitants of the county: parks, preserves, county forests, wildlife and other conservation areas and to promote and preserve health and general welfare of the people, to encourage the orderly development and conservation of natural resources and cultivate good citizenship by providing adequate programs of public recreation. The SCCB manages nearly 900 acres of parks, wildlife areas, and recreational trails throughout Sac County. Many recreational opportunities await you at these areas, ranging from biking the scenic Sauk Rail Trail, to walking the wooded trails of Hagge Park, to hunting deer or pheasants at Whitetail Woods or any of our other wildlife areas. There is also plenty of opportunity for camping, bird watching, canoeing, fishing and more!

In addition to managing these areas, the SCCB has a strong environmental education program designed to increase awareness and enjoyment of the county’s natural resources. The environmental education program is active throughout the county and makes presentations to schools, civic groups and clubs, Boy and Girl Scouts and to the general public year round. Summer camps, winter day camps, Knee High Naturalist and Conservation Field days are just a few examples of the many opportunities for children and adults to learn about our natural resources.
