Benton Conservation District is holding an in-person election on March 7, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at 418 N Kellogg St Suite B Kennewick, WA 99336.
The Benton Conservation District mission is to encourage wise stewardship of all natural resources for residents of Benton County. These resources include the driest wheat-producing region in the world, the third longest river in Washington State, unique shrub-steppe habitat, award-winning wineries, orchards and row crops, and growing cities. Through voluntary programs, education, expert advice, and sometimes financial assistance, BCD works in partnership with property owners to develop solutions, so they can meet their goals while practicing responsible stewardship.
Meets the second Wednesday of each month at 12:00 pm at the Richland Public Library, 955 Northgate Dr, Richland, WA 99352.
Many farmers want to conserve water, but it can be difficult, risky, and expensive. That's where conservation districts come in. They assist people, like Nestor Garcia from Blue Gem Farms, with making changes that work on-farm and benefit water quality and quantity.
