Washington 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.
Conservation districts — sometimes referred to as “CDs” — engage landowners with voluntary actions that keep our air, water, soil, and habitats healthy for all. They're community-based hubs of natural resource expertise and funding. CDs are staffed by locals who understand the needs of landscapes and fellow community-members that they serve.
Each of Washington’s 39 counties is represented by at least one conservation district.
Some examples of CD services include: erosion control, habitat restoration, manure management, wildfire prevention/mitigation, stormwater management, forest plans/management, irrigation efficiency, noxious weed control, fish barrier removals, livestock stream crossings, and more.
