Most people agree that conservation works best when people who live and work in an area learn to take care of their own natural resources. As legal sub-divisions of Washington State government, conservation districts are self-governed by a five-member volunteer board that establishes local priorities and sets policy. The Whidbey Island Conservation District (WICD) Board is composed of local farmers, landowners, and concerned citizens and is dedicated to maintaining Whidbey Island's renewable natural resources. Its priorities and goals include:
WICD Mission Statement
The Whidbey Island Conservation District serves present and future residents of Whidbey Island by supporting a healthy environment, and promoting voluntary, incentive-based options for conserving natural resources through educational outreach as well as technical and financial assistance.
UPDATE: Outdoor Burn Ban Lifted
Due to the increase in fuel moisture levels, the Sheriff's Office will lift the ban on outdoor burning at 8:00 am, on Tuesday, September 20, 2016. It is important to remember that residential yard debris and land-clearing burning are permanently banned in Coupeville, Freeland, Langley and Oak Harbor (and their urban growth areas). All yard debris and land-clearing burning will require a permit where open burning is allowed. All written burn permits will be issued through the Island County Health Department. To obtain a verbal permit for fires less than 4 feet in diameter, call the information Hotline at 360-240-5526 and listen to the required conditions.
