Sturgis, SD - The Board of Meade County Commissioners announces funding opportunities to organizations who support the conservation and enhancements of natural resources.  The County received court ordered restitution (Clean Water Act Violations) in the amount of $83,000 to be paid out over a three year period. These restricted funds are to be used solely for the conservation and enhancement of natural resources. 

Black Hills Trails is the first recipient of the County Conservation Fund ($10,000 cash and $5,000 in-kind) which will support their endeavors with the 7th Cavalry Trail System and the Deadman Mountain Trail Project. 

The Commission is seeking proposals from other organizations who may qualify for some of these conservation dollars. 

Please contact the County Commission office for further information @ 605.720.1625.
