WHAT IS A CONSERVATION DISTRICT?
For more than 75 years the Conservation Districts have been helping communities and local partners take care of farms, forests, urban green spaces/yards, waterways, and coastlines. Districts offer a range of voluntary services including assistance with: erosion control, habitat restoration, manure management, wildfire prevention/mitigation, storm water management, forest plans, irrigation efficiency, noxious weed control, fish barrier removals, livestock stream crossings, and more.
All the Conservation Districts in the State of Washington.
There are more than 3,000 across the U.S.A
This quick video from the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) presents a documentary how the Great American Dust Bowl of the 1930s gave rise to Conservation Districts and the birth of the private lands conservation movement in the U.S.
PALOUSE CONSERVATION DISTRICT
Located in Pullman, WA, Palouse Conservation District is one of four conservation districts within Whitman County.
Conservation Districts are Washington's only grassroots, locally-driven conservation delivery system that identifies local problems and develops local voluntary solutions.
The District is guided by a Board of three elected and
two appointed Supervisors.
These volunteer Supervisors establish policy, set priorities, and direct the District's operations. The District also maintains a staff of dedicated resource professionals ready to serve your conservation needs.
Board meetings are the second Tuesday of each month
(no meeting in August) at 6:00 pm at the Palouse Conservation District office.
All board meetings are open to the public.
