What is a Conservation District?
From the Washington State Conservation Commission:
Conservation Districts help people take care of everything they can see outside their windows – from farms, to forests, to urban yards, to rivers, lakes, and coastline. For more than 75 years, they have served as trusted, non-regulatory local partners helping people care for natural resources.
Districts offer a range of voluntary services including assistance with: erosion control, habitat restoration, manure management, wildfire prevention/mitigation, stormwater management, forest plans, irrigation efficiency, noxious weed control, fish barrier removals, livestock stream crossings, and more.
Conservation districts are locally led. Each district is directed by a five-member board of supervisors. There are 45 Conservation Districts in the state of Washington. Visit the Conservation District Map and Directory on the Washington State Conservation Commission’s website.
