The Ross County Conservation League was founded in 1944.

Our purpose is to encourage the conservation of our natural resources, the wise use and enjoyment of the outdoors,

and to educate those new to outdoor activities.


Twice each year with help of the ODNR we conduct classes for children and adults in archery, fishing and shooting.

These are open to all ages, are taught by qualified instructors and include how to safely handle fire arms and

archery equipment. Check the "events" page for the next class.


​Hunter Safety classes are conducted several times a year in the spring and fall. Completion of a Hunter

Safety class is required for all persons wishing to obtain an Ohio hunting license as well as

most other states. To sign up for one of our classes go to


Check the "events" page calendar for dates of classes and the "information" page for what you need to do to sign up.


Membership is open to persons 18 years and older of good character and who are sponsored by a current member.

Don't know a member?  Come to a meeting anyway and we'll find a member to sponsor you.

You may visit us as a guest of a member at any meeting except June (because of League elections in June.)

Dues are $40.00 per year and any volunteer time on any fund raising project is greatly appreciated.
