Welcome to the Cerro Gordo County Conservation Board Official Web Site. Cerro Gordo County Conservation LogoThe Cerro Gordo County Conservation Board (CGCCB) was established in 1958. The Conservation Board consists of five county residents, from different regions of the county, appointed by the County Supervisors. Board members serve five year terms. These appointed members donate their time and work with the CGCCB staff to further conservation within Cerro Gordo County. The CGCCB currently manages four county parks, twenty three wildlife areas, the Shellrock River Greenbelt and Preserve, the Lime Creek Nature Center and the multi-use Trolley trail. The CGCCB is also responsible for environmental education and the management of roadside vegetation in secondary road right-of-ways throughout the county.
