Palouse Conservation District implements, manages, and participates in a wide array of backyard restoration and conservation projects throughout Whitman County. We work with a variety of funders and are available to help assist landowners with educational, technical, and financial assistance to improve, enhance, and restore habitats of all shapes and sizes. We can help with the design, planning, and implementation of a project and can help find funding if none is currently available.
Backyard Conservation encompasses many types of conservation, including native plants, pollinators, wildlife habitat, water conservation, nutrient and pest management, and composting.
Native plants are adapted to our climate, require less maintenance, and provide food and shelter for local wildlife.
