"In 2011, for every dollar Knox-Lincoln received from the Knox-Lincoln counties, provided more than $3.35 worth of services. In addition to the funding we receive from the state and counties, the District meets its budget through like minded proceeds". -Knox-Lincoln Conservation District.
Knox-Lincoln Conservation District strives to "accomplish this through the delivery of specialized assistance towards education (K-12 and Adult) by bringing together educators with students from Knox and Lincoln county schools for a day of exploring conservation topics, environmental issues, live animals and farming to uncover the connections between the environment and their everyday lives".
