Davis County Conservation Board


 The Davis County Conservation Board was voted into existance in 1958 by the residents of Davis County.  Over the years the Davis County Conservation Board has worked to establish and maintain the goals and management objectives  which provide a high quality outdoor experience for the public. Since 1995 the board has focused on developing the McGowen Recreation and Wildlife area into a diverse blend of recreational opportunity through management of quality wildlife areas that include several ponds, prairie, timber, and oak savanna. Also offered on the area are several miles of trails  along with camping and picnic areas as well as four season rental cabins.
