Land & Water Management
It is our mission to work with our community to improve land and water management practices to improve and preserve Ozaukee County's natural resources for generations to come.
The Ozaukee County Land and Water is pleased to announce a Soil Health Academy opportunity will be taking place April 9-11, 2019. The location will be the T&R Dairy Farm, LLC in Watertown, WI. The Ozaukee County Natural Resource Committee feels very strongly about soil health that 20 $500 scholarships are being offered to farmers that live in Ozaukee County.

County Tree Program
THE TREE SALE IS CLOSED. YOU CAN CALL THE OFFICE AT 262 284 8313 IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE PLACED ON THE ONE DAY SALE MAILING LIST
Ozaukee County has been offering trees and shrubs at an affordable price for almost 30 years, resulting in the sale of over a million plants. The program encourages the planting of trees and shrubs for the numerous environmental benefits they provide. Trees and shrubs are sold on a first-come first-served basis. Trees and shrubs are normally ready for pick up in mid- to late-April at the Ozaukee County Highway Shop, 410 South Spring Street, Port Washington. Post cards detailing the pick-up date and times are mailed nearer to the time of distribution.
The County also provides the opportunity to purchase prairie seed, rain barrels, and bluebird houses made by the Friends of Harrington Beach State Park.
Thank you for your past and future participation.
