In the early 1940’s. A group of local fox hunters started holding meetings in Cowan, Indiana. From this start the Monroe Township Conservation was formed.


Club records indicate officers were first elected in 1941. And in 1950 the Monroe Township Conservation Club incorporated as a not for profit organization. Over the years MTCC has had membership numbers from a low of about 20 to the current 450 plus.


MTCC has been involved with many service projects through the years. It has worked on various projects with State and Local Government, local schools and universities, and with other local organizations. It has sponsored conservation fairs. Provided a place for local high school and university students to hold outdoor classes and projects. Provided training space and safe ranges for Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Schools, Law Enforcement and private business. Beginning in 1966 MTCC provided the U.S. Geological Survey with a place for an automatic water-stage recorder and observation well. This well is still in use today.


In 1999 MTCC acquired the special equipment to plant prairie grasses. We loan this equipment to those needing it to restore Indiana prairie grass lands. It has been used to reseed about 100 acres back into native Indiana grasses.


The Education Center building, opened in 2001, was built to support youth activities and classes at MTCC.


Established in 2005, in the name of a departed founding member, MTCC has awarded the Jack Cronin Scholarship Award . Since that time MTCC has awarded 1 or 2 scholarships per year.
